This is a very serious and somewhat disturbing exhibition, said Mayor Meralee Goldman, who is supportive of the exhibit and was first approached by the Austrian artist.
There is an important component of education to go along with this exhibit, Human Relations Director Mary OGorman said. This is a Holocaust Memorial, and the intent at times is to overwhelm.
The exhibit is described as an art event to focus the conscience of the viewer and, through media exposure, the conscience of the widest possible public by the artists draft proposal. An art installation a city block long...will rise into public view to cry out against not only one of historys most tragic and horrific episodes of prejudice, but also against the current resurgence of the endangerment of children through intolerance around the world.
