Holocaust Museum Houston presents Celebration of Hope
Celebration of Hope is a family-friendly affair that is part of the free admission weekend before the museum closes July 24 and relocates during its recently announced $33.8 million expansion. Activities include live music, food trucks, poetry readings by Writers Resist: Houston, kids’ butterfly art activities and face painting, interactive murals centered around hope, and live demonstrations by art students from Harmony Schools and Via Colori chalk artists Team RussKell. Special booths by HMH partners Barnes & Noble, Houston Japanese American Citizen League, Equality Texas, American Civil Liberties Union, Center for the Healing of Racism, and Asia Society will provide information and fun activities for all ages. Guided docent tours are scheduled every hour between 11:30 am and 3:30 pm, along with special appearances and conversations with Houston-area Holocaust survivors at 11 am and 1 pm.
