American artist Hyman Bloom produced works of astounding beauty and probing mysticism. Through subjects that range from the human body and natural forms to Jewish brides, Bloom’s richly colored surfaces reveal a persistent quest for inner truths. This symposium brings together academics, curators, and performers to explore Bloom’s work in the contexts of spirituality, music, and mid 20th-century art.
