Al Hurwitz Reception

Al Hurwitz is a world-renowned art educator. He has won numerous awards including a National Art Educator award, a Sir Herbert Read award from the International Society for Education through Art and, most recently, the Eisner Lifetime Achievement Award. He also holds the Chair Emeritus of the Center for Art Education at the Maryland Institute College of Art, and has written the classic art book, Children and Their Art: Methods for the Elementary School with Michael Daly.

All of this can sound sort of stuffy, so many awards, so many honors. But rest assured an afternoon with Al Hurwitz is anything but dull. At 91 years old he still has more energy than a toddler; he’s funnier too.

On Saturday, Jan 7, at 4 p.m. the West Tisbury Library will hold a reception for Mr. Hurwitz and his newest exhibit of work done as a WWII artist. His work will be displayed at the library for the month of January.
