Arrivals, Departures: The Oscar Ghez Collection

June 4, 2018 marked the opening exhibition at the Hecht Museum. This exciting project brought together eighteen Jewish artists who lived in Paris at the outbreak of World War II. Sixteen of the Eighteen were murdered by the Nazis, their art destroyed and their memories erased. Under the guidance of our in-house art historian expert and professor, Dr. Rachel Perry, our interning students spent the year hard at work preparing this exciting exhibit.
