Hadassah speaker to focus on 20th century NYC Jewish artists

Tina Solomon Kronenfeld Tina Solomon Kronenfeld Tina Solomon Kronenfeld, art educator and historian, will present “New York! New York! Jewish artists in the Big Apple (1949-2000)” on Wednesday, Nov. 15 from 7-9 p.m. as a program sponsored by the St. Petersburg Chapter of Hadassah.

The program, which provides an overview on how New York became the world’s center for art, will be presented at Congregation B’nai Israel, 300 58th St., N., St. Petersburg. This event is open to the public.

A lover of art since childhood, Solomon Kronenfeld received her BA in art education from the University of Maryland and a master of visual arts from Georgia State University.

She taught at various high schools throughout DeKalb County, GA, and finished her career at the historic Druid Hills High School – home of Jewish playwright Alfred Uhry and NY Yankees player Ron Blomberg. The school also served as backdrop for the classic movie Remember the Titans.

Reflecting on her teaching career, Solomon Kronenfeld said, “One of the things I am most proud of is the fact that many of my former students became art educators or artists, including Kara Walker, renowned artist and recipient of the MacArthur Genius Grant.
