The Liberation Art Project is a continuation of our project to ensure that the efforts to free Austria of National Socialism are not forgotten. Art professor William Contino and 5 art students (Harriet Smith, Chris Rezk, Lauren Gilson, Sara Jean Greenburg, and Stephanie Giera) from Alfred University (upstate NY- USA) came to Austria to work with Josef Schützenhöfer on the „Liberation Project“ in May/June 2013.

The “Liberation continued-2013” project was first presented at the Landgasthaus Schreiner in Pöllau with the support of the proprietors, Hannes and Renate Schreiner.

The cooperative work concluded with an art exhibition at the "Zollamt" art gallery in Bad Radkersburg, Styria/Austria.

A number of Austrian institutions supported this year’s project: Styrische Kulturinitiativ with Herbert Nichols, Max Aufischer of the Kulturvermittlung Steiermark, and the Werkstadt Graz with Joachim Baur and Barbara Edlinger.

The group also travelled to Rovinj, Croatia for some cultural enrichment, and also a little R + R.

The students have a blog documenting their travels and impressions here: http://alfredtoaustria.blogspot.co.at/
