World Renowned Artist Valentin Lustig Will Speak at Carnegie Mellon

WHAT: Romanian-born Swiss artist Valentin Lustig will speak at Carnegie Mellon University to discuss "Hoka-Néni: Seven Paintings by Valentin Lustig," an exhibit of his work that is opening this month at the The Frick Art & Historical Center in Pittsburgh's Point Breeze neighborhood. The exhibit is being curated by Edith Balas, a professor of art history at Carnegie Mellon. The seven paintings depict scenes from the life of Lustig's aunt, who, along with her four children, perished in the Holocaust.

WHEN: Lustig's talk at Carnegie Mellon is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Sept. 15. It is free and open to the public. The exhibit at the Frick opens Sept. 13 and runs through Nov. 9.

WHERE: The Singleton Room of the Roberts Hall of Engineering on the Carnegie Mellon campus, 5000 Forbes Ave., Oakland.

WHO: Lustig's appearance at Carnegie Mellon is sponsored by the Center for the Arts in Society. The center is a multi-disciplinary research and education center that brings together scholars from the humanities, social sciences and arts who are interested in studies of culture and society, and the history and production of the arts. It is a collaboration between the College of Fine Arts and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Carnegie Mellon.
