Chatham Alumni Tour The Murals of Maxo Vanka

Date: Thursday, March 21, 2019
Time: 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Location: Vanka Murals & Bar 3 Millvale

The Pittsburgh Events Planning Committee invites you to join fellow Chatham Alumni for a docent-guided tour of the murals of Maxo Vanka in Millvale, PA. Croatian artist Maxo Vanka painted a one-of-a-kind masterpiece on the interior walls of St. Nicholas Croatian Catholic Church. The 25 murals—created in two intense periods in 1937 and 1941—are unique, evocative and larger-than-life representations of faith and family; the immigrant experience in America; social justice and injustice and the horrors of war. Following the tour, a reception will be held at Bar 3 Millvale.
