Winners of the 2021 Student Art Contest

Richmond has become home to many Holocaust and contemporary genocide survivors and refugees. It is the Virginia Holocaust Museum’s mission to tell those stories, educating and helping to ensure that the words “Never Again,” are someday realized. For the 2020-2021 art contest students were asked to use the Museum’s collection. They watched survivor interviews, read about survivors’ lives and looked at their family photos to show us how the stories of local survivors have impacted and affected them.

There were 53 entries into the competition with over 20 schools represented. The judges for this year’s competition were Ali Kolleda, Assistant Curator at the Virginia Holocaust Museum and Twyla Kitts, Teacher Programs Educator at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
