elect_camera.png Art Exhibit: Effigy: Ghosts of Asbury Park Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact:    1-866-941-8188   
   

Photographs by Joseph Meacham on exhibit all month.

From the Artist:  "I grew up several miles south [of Asbury Park] in a middle class suburban beach community.  Just a twenty minute bus ride from my home, Asbury Park was the innocent arcade of my 1950s childhood and the raucous hub of music and surfing of my 60s adolescence.  It was a social landscape I associated with excitement, independence and freedom.  All that changed in the mid 1970s. 

"By 1974, Asbury Park, scarred by race riots and economic distress, was slowly crumbling into oblivion, taking the ghosts of its past with it.  The amusement park rides and boardwalk attractions were still there, but the life energy of this once vibrant beach town was gone and the future was growing darker. 

"Effigy: Ghosts of Asbury Park" is my reflection on those times and what became of this place.  It's a historic record and a personal metaphor, colored now by the patina of time.  Although the imagery is a mixture of nostalgia and sadness, I choose to think of it as the falling leaves that have served as the fertilizer for the renaissance of Asbury Park today."

    Contact:    1-866-941-8188   
   

"Harvest of Despair: The Man-made Famine of 1932-33 in Ukraine" documents the Ukrainian terror famine of 1932-33 that caused the death of seven million people in Ukraine.  Using interviews with survivors and scholars to supplement rare photographic evidence, it established that the terror famine was deliberately created by the Soviet Government as part of Stalin's decades-long effort to destroy the widespread Ukrainian resistance to Moscow's policies of collectivization and cultural destruction in Ukraine.  A powerful film, "Harvest of Despair" provides rare insight into one of the 20th century's least-known but most vicious genocides. 

The program will include an introduction of the film by Dr. Yuri Mischenko, a reading of the Recollections of Holodomor Survivor Nina Pinczuk Kowbasniuk, and a Q&A at the end of the film.

"Harvest of Despair: The Man-made Famine of 1932-33 in Ukraine" (55 minutes) is Directed by Slavko Nowytski, (c)1983, International Historic Films, Inc.

Presented by the Ukrainian National Women's League of America, Branch 98.
