This exhibit showcases art created this year in the Museum's Share Our Stories Project by students from Animo Ralph Bunche Charter High School, Animo Ellen Ochoa School, Cesar Chavez Elementary School, Kipp Scholar Academy, Prairie Vista Middle School, Fullerton Union High School and Garfield High School.

The Share Our Stories project connects students from under-resourced schools with Holocaust survivors for conversation, learning, and exploration. After visiting the Museum and touring the galleries, the students welcomed ten different survivors to their classrooms for conversation and questions related to this important history. Following these visits, students worked with Museum staff to create various art projects in reflection of their experiences at the Museum.

This year’s temporary exhibit features a broad array of artistic expressions: colorful silkscreens with messages of empowerment, winged butterflies with hopes for the future, and manzanita branches with leaves depicting students' identity and heritage.  

The Museum is grateful to the Max H. Gluck Foundation for its generous support of the Share Our Stories Project.
