Join us for an afternoon celebration of this new exhibit! Both George and Nicholas (Nicho) Lowry, the father-son collectors of the featured Czech poster art, will attend the opening. Viewers of PBS’s Antiques Roadshow will recognize Nicho Lowry as a regularly appearing expert. George Lowry was born in Czechoslovakia, escaping on the eve of World War II and Hitler’s occupation of the country. Nicho will talk about the collection and tell his family’s story of life in Czechoslovakia under Nazi and Communist rule. Light refreshment provided.

1:00 – 2:00pm: Presentation by Nicho Lowry in WFLA/ZCBJ Heritage Hall
2:00 – 3:00pm: Nicho and George Lowry will be available in Petrik Gallery to discuss the artwork and their collection
