Opening Reception: “Life: Survivor Portraits”
June 26, 2014 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Central Gallery
In Hebrew 18 is “chai,” meaning life, and Holocaust Museum Houston’s upcoming exhibition “Life: “Survivor Portraits” serves as an exploration and a celebration of the lives that Houston-area survivors of the Holocaust have created for themselves. Beginning on June 26, 2014 during the Museum’s 18th anniversary year, this new series by local artist Kelly Lee Webeck will include 18 portraits of local survivors and 18 images that document the home space each survivor has created. The exhibit will include 36 gelatin silver prints. To increase the exhibit’s interactivity, broaden accessibility and extend its reach beyond the physical and temporal exhibit, two iPads will include additional images not shown on the walls. Through the use of technology, these images, and the 36 images in the show will be available through the iPad technology utilized in the Museum’s Digital Trunk program. On the digital screens, the photographs can be viewed and used in classrooms and other community spaces to continue the inquiry begun in the exhibit space. Please note: this event is intended for HMH members. To renew your membership or to join and attend, visit our Web site at www.hmh.org, e-mail membership@hmh.org or call 713-527-1640.
