Frederick Douglass national traveling exhibition now at the Library

Le Moyne College will host a national traveling exhibition titled Frederick Douglass from Slavery to Freedom: The Journey to New York City. This exhibition will be on display in the Noreen Reale Falcone Library until Nov. 7.  The exhibition explores the youth of Frederick Douglass, born a slave in Maryland in 1818, who after his escape to NY in 1838 became one of the most famous men in nineteenth-century America. Douglass fought to end slavery and championed civil rights for all Americans. His autobiography, published in 1845, was a powerful weapon in the abolitionist cause, and a bestseller in the United States. The exhibition poses the question: What aspects of his youth shaped his determination to be free?

Frederick Douglass from Slavery to Freedom: The Journey to New York City was developed from his autobiography, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave, by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. The exhibition was curated by Susan F. Saidenberg.

Robert Hofmann: A View of the Middle East (1914-1928)

The Wilson Art Gallery is proud to present an exhibit of Robert Hofmann’s paintings, pastels and sketches set in the Middle East in the time of World War. The exhibit will be in the Gallery from Oct. 10 until Nov. 7.

Robert Hofmann studied art at the Vienna Academy after serving in the Austrian and Ottoman armies during World War I. After completing his training he returned to the Middle East further developing his unique body of work. Following a career that took him from Vienna, to London and Australia, Hofmann subsequently settled in Syracuse in the 1950s where he maintained a studio and taught painting until his passing in the 1980s.
