Opening Reception for Telling it Forward, Making Memory Matter Exhibit
Thursday, October 13, 4:30-6:30pm
The exhibit highlights original artwork of 7th grade students at Sidney Gutierrez Middle School in Roswell, New Mexico. After studying the Holocaust in Leslie Lawner's Language Arts/Social Studies class, the students participated in Chapman University's online contest. Students had the opportunity to listen to Holocaust survivors/rescuers taped testimonies and then created a scene or memory of their choosing that may have been evoked by this experience. Descriptive text accompanies the artwork. The student artists will be in attendance and honored at the reception.
