October 15, 2015 through March 13, 2016
The work of artist Michael Roque Collins is the focus of Holocaust Museum Houston's upcoming exhibition, "Sojourn in the Shadowlands." The creation of the series evolved from Collins’ recent creative territory in painting and a growing interest in a specific sort of land. He is increasingly interested in sacred landscapes, which bring to mind both the suffering which humans are capable of bestowing on one another and aspects of the meditative and possibility of hope. The series consists of more than thirty oil-on-linen and mixed media paintings on black and white photographs. Images included are from the areas of the Neuengamme, Buchenwald and Auschwitz memorial camps, reflecting the memories which the land in and surrounding these camps evoke. Through the feeding of mixed media pigment, the photographs are transformed to other worlds capable of illumination and, at times, the sacred. Museum members are invited to a free preview reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2015. To renew a membership or to join and attend, visit www.hmh.org, e-mail membership@hmh.org or call 713-527-1640.

February 12, 2016 through July 31, 2016
Holocaust Museum Houston will mark its 20th year of teaching the dangers of hatred, prejudice and apathy with an exhibit 20 years in the making with the help from children across the world that commemorates the 1.5 million children who died in the Holocaust. Since 1995, children from every continent except Antarctica have brought or sent handmade butterflies to the Museum as part of “The Butterfly Project,” an effort to collect 1.5 million handmade butterflies to commemorate each of those children who perished. Beginning Feb. 12, 2016, a selection of those inspiring creations go on display at the Museum in one of the most important art exhibitions ever displayed as part of “Taking Flight: The Butterfly Project.”
