Butterfly Making Workshop

Butterfly Making Workshop - 2013

Butterfly Making Workshop · Sun., April 7  · 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. · Museum Lobby · Pavel Friedman, a prisoner of the Terezin concentration camp, wrote the moving poem, “The Butterfly” in 1942.  Although the author died in Auschwitz two years later, after more than half a century, activists were inspired by his words to launch a project to commemorate the child victims of the Holocaust. The Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art presents an art workshop for children and families to create an artistic butterfly.  Modeled after similar projects, the creation of handmade butterflies serves as a symbol of remembrance and renewed life, as well as a tangible reminder of what was lost. There is no cost to participate in the workshop and participants will receive free museum admission for the day.
