means discussing the various
Jewish traditions with Jewish
and gentile buyers.
Each year, Mrs. Nelson packs
up her special Judaica pieces and
heads to art shows around the
country. Later this year, she'll
bring her Judaica works to the
national conferences for Ortho-
dox, Conservative and Reform
Jews. Regardless of denomina-
tion, Mrs. Nelson said, there is
an universal appreciation for Ju-
Perhaps that means plenty of

Captures Bosnia

As a photojournalist, Edward
Serotta spent the years leading
up to — and following — the
demise of the Iron Curtain fo-
cusing his camera on the lives of
people living in the former Yu-
goslavia and other Central Eu-
ropean countries. When the Jews
he had photographed, and made
friends with, asked him to revis-
it war-torn Bosnia-Herzegovina,
he witnessed what had never
happened before: For the first
time during a modern European
war, the Jewish community is
saving, rescuing and protecting
its neighbors, regardless of their
ethnicity, however possible.
These photographs are the fo-
cus of the travelling exhibition,
"Survival in Sarajevo: How a
Jewish Community Came to the
Aid of Its City," on display at
Spertus Museum, 618 South
Michigan Avenue, beginning
Sunday, April 9. The exhibition
runs through Sunday, Aug. 6.
Mr. Serotta's photographs are
the product of the 31 days spent
capturing Jewish life during the
Serbian siege of the Bosnian cap-
ital. The expedition itself was
spurred by a desire to observe the
surge of nationalism with its im-
ages of "ethnic cleansing" over-
running Bosnia-Herzegovina's
untraveled round to democracy.
Mr. Serottas was born in Sa-
vannah, Georgia, in 1949, and
works as a freelance photogra-
pher and writer. Presently, Mr.
Serotta lives in Berlin, where he
organizes the Central Europe
Center for Research and Docu-

Arts Education
Program Funded

Wayne State University's College
of Fine, Performing and Com-
munication Arts, Hudson's, and
other area funders are working
together to show how the arts
positively affect children's edu-
cation. Hudson's has initiated the
Arts Education and Community
partnership in Detroit, a program
to strengthen education through
the arts in partnership with the
Detroit Public Schools.
This project is an outgrowth of
a community arts assessment
process which Hudson's began
nearly two years ago with Art,sVi-
sion, a consulting group from
New York. A major goal of this
program is overall school im-
provement through the arts. The
project will directly impact a stu-
dent's life by providing classroom
experiences that demonstrate the
connection of the arts to all as-
pects of everyday life and learn-
ing. It will not only impact the
arts but other disciplines such as
math and reading will be posi-
tively affected.
Wayne State University's
College of Fine, Performing
and Communication Arts will
serve as the administrator of this
program, which will provide re-
sources in order to facilitate a
comprehensive five-year imple-
mentation for the creation of arts-
intensive curriculum.
To help fund the program,
Wayne State University has thus
far received initial grants of
$80,000 from Hudson's and
$5,000 from the Earl Beth Foun-
dation. Grants are also being
sought from other area funders.
