Interview with Marty Levin: Krystallnacht Series Art

https://yilovejewish.org/event/interview-with-marty-levin-krystallnacht-series-art/

An interview with Marty Levin, an accomplished artist whose intricately detailed miniature buildings, fabric artwork, paintings, flags, and Judaica grace homes, businesses, and houses of worship. His artwork is continuously reminding, and educating, those who come to see his stunning works about the world that existed before the Nazis came to power.

Through his Krystallnacht Series Synagogues, Marty Levin recreates – in miniature – a piece of Jewish heritage, the synagogues devastated and destroyed by Hitler’s minions. 10 to 20 inches tall, 5 1/2 to 15 inches wide, each carefully researched synagogue is made from wood, meticulously painted with acrylics, so that every brick, stone, spire, and stained glass window is shockingly realistic, and deeply emotionally impactful.
