The Artifacts Drawings: Works by Nancy Patz
Building on her professional success and personal satisfaction of highlighting Holocaust artifacts as an educational tool, Nancy has created the covers and five pages of art for the 2014 issue of PRISM: An Interdisciplinary Journal for Holocaust Educators. Her work consists of more than 125 small pen and ink, pencil, and watercolor drawings of authentic Holocaust artifacts from the Holocaust museums in Washington, D.C., Jerusalem, Houston, and New York, and the Jewish Museum of Maryland in Baltimore.
Nancy commissioned a video to further explore the drawings, edited by Peter Bruun, a well-known Baltimore artist, Michael Curry, Department Chair of the Goucher College Theatre Department.
Nancy's script, which conveys the powerful histories behind these artifacts, is narrated in the video by Goucher students and faculty, while music composed by a Goucher student accompanies the words and images.
