Museum Matters: August 2019

Posted on August 2, 2019 by

Last Six Weeks

First, the good news – in negotiations with the Jewish Museum Milwaukee we’ve been able to extend the tour of Stitching History from the Holocaust until September 15. It will now close the same day as Fashion Statement.

And now the other news – six weeks will fly by before you know it. Don’t procrastinate. As added incentive for your visit, we’ve saved some of our best related programs – including virtual tours of the Anne Frank House as well as lectures by Dr. Vanessa Ochs and Jenna Joselit for these final weeks of the exhibit (see details below).


Upcoming programs
All programs take place at the Jewish Museum of Maryland unless otherwise noted. Please contact our Programs Manager at / 443-873-5177 with any questions or for more information.
