The Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus in Farmington Hills will display the multimedia art exhibit “Where the Past Meets the Future” by Fay Grajower from March 15 through July 21.
The exhibit features 140 small-scale paintings and mixed media pieces. It 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.
“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.”
