Photorealist style exhibit by Richard Heipp opens at Holocaust Museum

Richard Heipp, like Suzanne Camp Crosby, is a college art professor, teaching painting at the University of Florida. He works in the photorealist style, using vintage photographs as a starting point for collage-type layers of images. His narratives are much darker, though, addressing issues of Jewishness in Nazi Germany through a contemporary lens. A group of his work opens at the Holocaust Museum, 55 Fifth St. S, St. Petersburg, on Saturday. Shown is Germanic Guilt Symbols II: Civil Defense Triptych, 1990, shaped acrylic on plastic panels. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission is $16 adults, $14 seniors, $10 college students and $8 youths younger than 18. flholocaustmuseum.org or (727) 820-0100.
