St. Petersburg, Florida
October 11-December 29, 2014
The Memory Project exhibit was on display in an 1100 square foot gallery on the Florida Holocaust Museum’s second floor. It looked spectacular. Along with the exhibit, we held In art workshops for docents and students in which we included photographs and stories of survivors from the St. Petersburg community. Here are a few of the students’ comments about the exhibits and the workshops. Read more when you see their portraits.
