Featured Workshop

Creative Writing
With Evelyn Walsh


For Maurice Sendak, imagination was essential to our humanity.  In this featured workshop, we will use word games and creative writing prompts that make it fun and easy to plunge into writing.  With a little luck, the walls will indeed become the world all around. Participation in this workshop is $25 for non-members and $18 for members (includes museum admission for the day), and the number of participants will be capped at 25 individuals. In order to reserve your spot in the Creative Writing workshop, please use the registration button below.

    • Vedem Underground: The Secret Magazine of Terezin : Vedem Underground

      The magazine was one of the longest-running underground publication to be regularly produced by Nazi prisoners. From 1942-1944, VEDEM’s teenage authors documented their harrowing existence with defiance, humor, heartbreak, and poignancy, and created an enduring example of social activism through artistic expression. Using graphics, drawings, paintings, prose, and poetry, we hear the voices of some of the era’s youngest resistance fighters who refused to give up their identity, humanity, and fighting spirit.
