Presented by United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s Holocaust Commission, the Elie Wiesel Visual Arts competition provides middle and high school students with questions to learn about the Holocaust while applying the lessons to create artwork.

The competition is named in honor of Nobel Laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, who dedicated his life to promoting peace and understanding.

Paintings, sculptures, and collages that creatively explore the lessons of the Holocaust are highlighted in the exhibit, which provides an opportunity for visitors to see the beautiful and thought-provoking pieces created by the featured students.

The exhibit at the Sandler Family Campus runs through the end of May.
