Bracer Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program, 1942-1964
a

December 9, 2016 through May 14, 2017
Holocaust Museum Houston will open its first Spanish/English bilingual exhibit, “Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program, 1942-1964,” Friday, December 9, 2016. The exhibit showcases the Bracero program, the largest guest worker program in U.S. History, which brought millions of Mexican nationals north to work on short-term labor contracts. The work was backbreaking and living conditions poor, but the program offered Mexican men economic opportunities and much-needed work. Their contributions to communities in Mexico and the U.S. have had a lasting impact on the political, economic, social, and cultural landscapes of both nations.

"The Butterfly Project" "The Butterfly Project"
a

March 11, 2016 through March 31, 2017
Butterflies are a powerful symbol of transformation and have the ability to make an impact with just a flap of one’s wings. They are beauty incarnate, symbolizing all the good things that humanity can picture, while reminding us that life is fragile and that human dignity is delicate. But more compelling and more critical is the butterfly’s role as a potent symbol of hope, telegraphing humanity’s potential in a simple, elegant idea. Over the course of 20 years, The Butterfly Project has fired the imagination of millions of people and has resulted in the creation of more than 1.5 million stunning butterflies, handmade in every conceivable material, color and form. Beginning March 11, 2016, six traveling displays will go on view at various public spaces around Houston throughc 2017. For locations and viewing hours and additional information about the displays, visit www.hmh.org/butterflies.
