Free Preview of New Houston Holocaust Exhibit – Sept 16





The public is invited to a free preview reception  at the Houston Holocaust Museum from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 16. Admission is free. After a glamorous fashion career that spanned six decades, Dallas Hill now lives and paints in a cedar-lined cabin in the Texas art community of New Ulm. In 2004, she turned her heart to portrait painting. Inspired by the story of Anne Frank, she captured the beauty and youth to memorialize the young woman in her new exhibit “The Holocaust: An Artist’s Glimpse of the Past,” on view Sept. 17, 2010 through Dec. 17, 2010 in the Museum’s Laurie and Milton Boniuk Resource Center and Library.  In addition to the Frank portrait, the exhibit also includes images of two of the men responsible for her death – Adolf Hitler and Adolf Eichmann. The black-and-white portraits of Hitler and Eichmann stand in stark contrast to the colorful portrait of Frank. Fashion acted as a thread that drew Hill to the life of Anne Frank. A photograph of Frank in a coat reminded Hill of a similar coat she wore as a girl. For more information, call 713-942-8000 or e-mail exhibits@hmh.org.
