The Virginia Holocaust Museum’s Visual Arts Competition, sponsored through the generosity of Marcus and Carole Weinstein, is a yearly art contest and exhibit. Middle and high school students are asked to interpret a Holocaust and genocide related theme using 2D and 3D art. The contest is judged by members of the Richmond art community and displayed in the VHM’s galleries. With this year’s theme we ask you to learn about local Holocaust and contemporary genocide survivors and show us through your art how their stories have impacted you.
Any questions regarding the Visual Arts Contest at the Virginia Holocaust Museum, please contact Megan Ferenczy, Director of Education
The Penny Campaign was started in 1999 by Sara Rosenbaum, granddaughter of museum co-Founder, Al Rosenbaum, with the goal of creating a visual representation of the 6 million Jewish lives lost during the Holocaust.
Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors have the opportunity to earn a “Remembering the Holocaust: Virginia Holocaust Museum” girl scout patch.
There are a variety of internship programs and volunteer opportunities that students can participate in.
