Additional Information

from text panel:

"Termination was inspired by dialogues the Voice to Vision team had with Holocaust survivors, Murray Brandys and Joe Grosnecht regarding their experiences on the boxcars. The small monkey sculpture entitled 'Hear No Evil', is a found object purchased at a garage sale in the early 1970's. For over 30 years I tried to place it in an artwork but never found the right place. Finally, after hearing the stories of Murray and Joe, I placed it in 'Termination' where it represents people who, in the beginning stages of World War II, were in denial about their fate. Adding the monkey was the last visual move we made to 'finish' the piece.
