History of The Society
The Arthur Szyk Society was founded in 1991 by George Gooche, a retired medical administrator in Orange County who discovered a cache of Szyk artwork that had been in storage for four decades. Inspired by his find, Gooche took it upon himself to learn more about the artist and revive his popularity. He published newsletters featuring his research and spearheaded the 1991 exhibition Arthur Szyk: Illuminator at the Wilshire Boulevard Temple in Los Angeles.

In 1997 The Society relocated to San Francisco Bay Area, where a new Board of Trustees formed under the leadership of Irvin Ungar, a rabbi, curator, and antiquarian. Within a few short years, The Society had expanded its mission and outreach to include the launch of a website, traveling exhibition program, a redesigned member newsletter and other publications, and a speakers bureau.

Today The Arthur Szyk Society is stronger than ever, with an international membership drawn from nearly 20 countries. Whether our staff is consulting on fine art exhibitions in San Francisco or Kraków, cataloguing a newly discovered painting in the Arthur Szyk Image Database, or delivering an illustrated presentation to a packed lecture hall, we are proud to say that we are ever closer to our goal of bringing about the renaissance of Arthur Szyk

The Arthur Szyk Society is authorized to represent Arthur Szyk’s daughter in the reproduction of her father’s art. We cooperate with publishers, filmmakers, museums, and non-profit organizations as they prepare books, exhibitions, and more. Inquiries are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, on factors including: title and author; intended audience; estimated print run or audience; image usage (plus any caption and relevant text); and whether or not a high-resolution image file is needed. When appropriate, we do request a donation to help fund our continued services. To inquire regarding the reproduction of an Arthur Szyk image, please contact us at info@szyk.org.


Image Database The Society is creating the first database of Szyk’s original works of art and archival material, which will be accessible worldwide to researchers and the general public for a nominal fee. The database will categorize all known pieces of Szyk’s art, which are housed in collections worldwide. It will also be an important resource supporting The Society’s various programs, especially the creation of exhibitions and development of educational materials. To learn more about the Arthur Szyk Image Database project, please click here.


Collections: Loans and Consultations The Society has developed relationships with public institutional collections and private collections of Arthur Szyk’s art in the United States and abroad. The Society also works closely with the artist’s daughter, Alexandra Szyk Bracie. Through these relationships The Society is able to facilitate loans to other exhibiting institutions such as museums, art galleries, libraries, and community centers.

 


Archives The Society has access to primary and secondary source materials representing the life and art of Arthur Szyk: documents and correspondence, books and magazines, transparencies and slides, audio and video tapes, posters, and exhibition panels. The Society owns the manuscript of the very special Julia Szyk Memoirs, which chronicle the years spanning her marriage to Szyk, and the artistic, social, and political worlds they shared. The Society plans to organize an inventory of the archives and produce a catalogue of its contents for research use by individuals and institutions including scholars, artists and art historians, collectors and students, and advocates for social change.


Publications The Society encourages the publication of books about Arthur Szyk, his art and messages. To date, The Arthur Szyk Society has cooperated with the publication of: the Heroes of Ancient Israel: The Playing Card Art of Arthur Szyk deluxe limited edition box set (Burlingame: Historicana, 2011); the new edition of The Szyk Haggadah (Burlingame: Historicana, 2008); Arthur Szyk—Drawing Against National Socialism and Terror (Deutsches Historisches Museum, Berlin, 2008); Arthur Szyk: Indignant Jewish Illuminator (Tokyo: Shakai Hyoronsha, 2007); Arthur Szyk: Artist, Jew, Pole (Oxford: The Littman Library of Jewish Civilization, 2004); The Art and Politics of Arthur Szyk (Washington D.C.: United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, 2002); and Justice Illuminated: The Art of Arthur Szyk (Chicago: Spertus Museum, 1998). The Society also produces its own publications, including the scholarly Art History Publications series and the annual newsletter. To learn more, please visit the Resources section of our website.


Educational Resources The Society collaborates with educators and social change advocates around the U.S. to conceptualize the goals and design of its education programs. Thus far, The Society has produced a university and secondary school Study Guide to serve as a curriculum stimulus and companion guide to The Society’s traveling exhibition Justice Illuminated: The Art of Arthur Szyk, which engages students with Szyk’s artistic and social messages.


Speakers Bureau The Society coordinates speakers for events at museums as well as at universities and high schools around the globe. In addition, The Society’s Curator is available to speak at exhibition openings and to participate in scholarly panel discussions—please inquire at info@szyk.org.


International Tours The Arthur Szyk Society regularly coordinates member tours in conjunction with major exhibitions of Arthur Szyk’s art. The Szyk in San Francisco Tour, which centered on the Legion of Honor exhibition “Arthur Szyk: Miniature Paintings and Modern Illuminations,” attracted 50 participants for a special behind-the-scenes tour. Nearly two dozen Society members joined our weeklong Szyk in Berlin Culture Tour, which coincided with the opening of the Deutsches Historisches Museum exhibition, “Arthur Szyk – Drawing Against National Socialism and Terror” (August 29, 2008–January 4, 2009). In 2005, The Society coordinated two trips to Poland that gave our members the chance to see exhibitions of original Szyk art and to participate in special receptions at the American Embassy in Warsaw and the U.S. Consulate in Kraków.

Privacy Policy
This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their ‘Personally identifiable information’ (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our blog, website or app?

When ordering or registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, mailing address, phone number or other details to help you with your experience.

Do we use ‘cookies’?

We do not use cookies for tracking purposes

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser’s Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

Third Party Disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information.

Third party links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

Google

Google’s advertising requirements can be summed up by Google’s Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users. https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/1316548?hl=en

We have not enabled Google AdSense on our site but we may do so in the future.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. – See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:
Users can visit our site anonymously
Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.
Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’, and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes:
• On our Privacy Policy Page
Users are able to change their personal information:
• By emailing us
• By calling us

How does our site handle do not track signals?
We honor do not track signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.

Does our site allow third party behavioral tracking?
It’s also important to note that we do not allow third party behavioral tracking

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under 13.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
We will notify the users via email
• Within 7 business days

We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to:
• Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.
• Market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our clients after the original transaction has occurred

To be accordance with CANSPAM we agree to the following:
• NOT use false, or misleading subjects or email addresses

• Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters
• Monitor third party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.
