FREE EVENT - FREE PARKING IN BACK LOT - FREE PEACE

Downtown Detroit’ Swords into Plowshares PEACE CENTER AND GALLERY is showcasing the prints of famous German anti-war artist Kathe Kollwitz, (1876-1945).

The prints of her drawings, lithographs and wood-cuts were first displayed at the gallery 20 years ago to coincide with the 50th anniversary of kollwitz‘ death. Throughout her career Kollwitz spoke so ardently about the hellishness and futility of war that her art was banned by the Nazi Regime. She Portrayed the wretched situation of the laboring poor culminating in a beautiful and dark story of how war and poverty are alike.

This retrospective exhibit allows us to examine and remember this important name in the world of printmaking. It will be clear to viewers that Her art is a bridge to encourage speaking out for social justice, peace, wars, and the inequities of today.
