About the exhibit:
This exhibition is collaboration between the German artist Molzberger (who teaches sculpture and ceramics at Houston Baptist University) and Rubin Samelson who was a World War II concentration camp survivor. Samelson passed away Jan. 15, 2013. As a young man, Samelson was placed in the Buchenwald, Germany, concentration camp and forced to work in the glass factory. Once he escaped from the camp, he used his knowledge of glass production to make art. In this installation, with Molzberger’s assistance, they produced 100 butterflies in colored glass. The exhibit also includes a video interview of Samelson and sculptural frameworks by Molzberger.
