Introduction Susan Weinberg both researches and paints family, cultural and community history. Her family history interests and travel frequently inform her artwork. Susan traveled to Vilnius, Lithuania where she studied Yiddish at the Vilnius Yiddish Institute and developed a series of artwork on how Lithuania deals with its Holocaust history. She has traveled to her ancestral towns where she did research in the archives. Susan has created Kehila links (websites on ancestral towns) for Dunilovichi, Belarus and Radom, Poland. Out of this research she developed a series of artwork on the pre-war Jewish community from which her family came. Susan has exhibited her artwork nationally and internationally. Her current body of work is the Jewish Identity and Legacy project, a project which includes oral history and art creation. Based in Minneapolis-St Paul, Susan creates artwork and does genealogy consulting. She speaks frequently on her artwork and genealogy topics.
