Dear friends and members of The Arthur Szyk Society:
Greetings! You and your family and friends are invited to attend

    Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art

    An illustrated presentation on the art and messages of Polish-Jewish artist Arthur Szyk (1894-1951)

    by Irvin Ungar, Curator of The Arthur Szyk Society


    Veterans Day

    November 11, 2009

The Society is delighted to announce that the NMAJMH has invited Irvin to speak on the art of Arthur Szyk in honor of the Jewish War Veterans (JWV). As you may know, Szyk – a veteran of World War I – was an active member of the JWV in the United States. He created several beautiful works of art exclusively for the JWV's use, works that will be highlighted in Irvin's exciting presentation.
We hope you will invite your family and friends to enjoy this timely and inspiring event in our nation's capital. To help you spread the word, we have attached the NMAJMH's official event flyer (in both Microsoft Word and PDF format) so you can easily print or email it.
Please notify us if you are coming to Washington DC on November 11th so Irvin can plan to greet you with a warm "hello" on behalf of all of us at The Society. Hope to see you there!
Best regards,
