Beloved: Children of the Holocaust – Artist Talk with Mary Burkett

Sumter County Museum presents an artist talk with Mary Burkett June 13 at Temple Sinai Jewish History Center. Burkett’s exhibition Beloved: Children of the Holocaust will be on display. Having had no artistic training, in January 2017 Burkett began to create a living memorial to precious children killed in the Holocaust. In seven short months she had created a collection of beautiful portraits. The portraits have been viewed across the United States and in countries throughout Europe and have received recognition from the Congress of the United States.
