The Curtis Laws Wilson Library at Missouri S&T will host “The Memory Project: Connecting Art and History” on Oct. 1 as part of the event series connected to the Americans and the Holocaust exhibit.
The workshop will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, on the second floor of the library, and is expected to run 45-90 minutes. While the Americans and the Holocaust exhibit is designed for 8th grade and up, this workshop is appropriate for students in grades 6 and higher, at a parent’s discretion. Participants of all ages are welcome.
“The Memory Project” was developed by artist Roz Jacobs in memory of her uncle Kalman, who died in the Holocaust. After a video about Kalman and a brief art lesson, participants will use charcoal and black and white pastels to create portraits based on photographs of people who were affected by the Holocaust.
