INTO THE LIGHT: The Healing Art of Kalman Aron
A story of courage, hope and transformation by Susan Beilby Magee

A six-year-old girl sits for her portrait by an unknown immigrant artist. Fifty years later, he asks her to write his story.

Kalman Aron is one of the last career artists who is a living survivor of the Holocaust, and his artwork represents a significant contribution to post-War American Emigré Art. Aron was honored in 2010 with the hanging of his iconic Mother and Child, 1951 (left), in the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust.

Using Aron’s art, Magee will present his journey out of the darkness into the light.
