Exhibition of Salvador Dali's Aliyah Suite
The Malcolm Rosenberg Hillel Center, home to Hillel at Virginia Tech, hosts this month an exclusive viewing of Salvador Dali's Aliyah Suite, a set of twenty-five photo-lithographs commissioned by Samuel Shore in 1968 to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the state of Israel. The prints, full of references to the Old Testament and modern history, offer a haunting, visual depiction of the Holocaust and the circumstances that led to the birth of the Jewish State, and a letter by David Ben-Gurion, Israel's first prime minister, accompanies the collection.
One of the few remaining complete sets of Salvador Dali's Aliyah Suite, the exhibition is available for public viewing at the Malcolm Rosenberg Hillel Center during the month of March from Monday-Friday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The Hillel Center is located at 710 Toms Creek Road in Blacksburg, Virginia. This exhibition is generously funded by the Intercultural Engagement Center at Virginia Tech, and the Moss Arts Center provided instrumental installation support.
