Visual Art Contest 2016!

December 11, 2015–
Teachers and students, it’s time for our annual Visual Arts Contest!

This year we are asking students to create art around the idea of survival. Students may consider survival as a concept or as a subject of the Holocaust and genocide.

The Virginia Holocaust Museum’s Visual Arts Competition, sponsored through the generosity of Weinstein Properties, is a yearly art contest and exhibit. Held in April in conjunction with the VHM’s Holocaust Memorial Program, middle and high school students are asked to interpret a Holocaust 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.
