PRLog - Feb. 19, 2013 - FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. -- The Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus (www.holocaustcenter.org) announced that from Mar. 15 through July 21, it will be displaying the multimedia art exhibit, “Where the Past Meets the Future,” by artist Fay Grajower.  The Holocaust Memorial Center is located at 28123 Orchard Lake Road in Farmington Hills.

The exhibit, which features 140 small-scale paintings and mixed media pieces, revisits the vibrant Jewish life in Poland before the Holocaust and reflects hope and interest in contemporary Polish Jewish life and culture.  Grajower uses her acquired memories of her mother and siblings’ experiences to work through issues of the past.  Eleven other works by Grajower, including two very large-scale paintings, oil on canvas works, paintings on vinyl, among other mixed-media pieces, also will be on display.

Grajower’s works have been featured in galleries and museums in the U.S., Poland, Mexico, Switzerland and Germany. She has several commissioned pieces, including a sculpted glass installation at the Jewish Community Center in Wilmington, DE, a Holocaust memorial sculpture at B’nai Torah Congregation in Boca Raton, and an installation for the International Women’s Research Center at Brandeis University.

“When we decide which exhibits we would like to display in our museum, we want to make sure that whatever is brought in will leave our visitors with a sense of history, social responsibility and morality,” said Holocaust Memorial Center Executive Director Stephen Goldman.  “‘Where the Past Meets the Future’ represents those three and we are fortunate to have this exhibit here for the next few months.”

About the Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus
The Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus opened in 1984.  Local Holocaust survivors, with community support, founded the museum to teach about the senseless murder of millions, and why everyone must respect and stand up for the rights of others if the world is to prevent future discrimination, hate crime and genocide. As Michigan’s only Holocaust museum, the Holocaust Memorial Center annually touches the lives of more than 85,000 individuals, who leave the museum profoundly affected with a newly acquired sense of history, social responsibility and morality. The Holocaust Memorial Center’s exhibits create a call to action, teaching visitors through the examples of those who risked their lives to save others, and asking its guests to react to contemporary challenges such as racism, intolerance, bullying and prejudice.

The facility is wheelchair accessible and free parking is available at both the North and South entrances.
