Join us for a workshop dedicated to creating a visual story through the art of collage. Participants bring family mementoes including photographs and documents from before, during and after the Holocaust that highlight their experiences. Photocopies of these materials are then arranged into a beautiful collage that will become part of an art installation at the JMM in Spring 2017.
