Plan to stay after the May 20th Homeschool Day program, as the Museum is honored to welcome The Butterfly Project.
The Butterfly Project is a call to action through education, the arts, and memorial-making. The Butterfly Project teaches social justice through lessons of the Holocaust, educating all about the dangers of hatred and bigotry to cultivate empathy and social responsibility. By painting ceramic butterflies, which are permanently displayed as symbols of resilience and hope, participants remember the 1.5 million children killed during the Holocaust. In this work, The Butterfly Project honors our commitment to the Survivors to never forget.
Supplies will be provided for this activity and all ages are encouraged to participate.
The Butterfly Project will occur at the end of the May 20th Homeschool Day at approximately 2:45 p.m.
