About the Samuel Bak Institute: The Samuel Bak Institute is an ongoing initiative selected as one of UNO's Big Ideas. Using the art and life of world renowned artist and Holocaust survivor Samuel Bak, a future museum will awaken the community to the richness and diversity of the human experience and invite curiosity and collaborative learning through active engagement with ideas, artworks, and exhibitions. Programming, on campus and in the surrounding community, tailored to foster formative connections between the art of Samuel Bak and students of all ages will be central. Critical to its role as a teaching museum will be direct experiential opportunities for UNO students and faculty to participate in integral aspects of museum/archiving practices.
