In support of "Broken: A Holocaust History in Fused Glass", join us at the Museum of Ventura County in the Martin V. and Martha K. Pavilion on Sunday, March 24 from 2 – 4 p.m. for Women’s Stories from the Holocaust, a panel discussion featuring Celina Biniaz, Inga Boldt, Lee Edwards, and Frances Elson.

The Museum of Ventura County is honored to host the new exhibit "Broken: A Holocaust History in Fused Glass", on display March 2 – April 27, 2019 at the Museum of Ventura County in the Community Gallery. “My parents’ stories were incubating in my soul”, explains artist Frances Elson. The desire to frame her parents’ experience in the Holocaust and their family’s displacement in numerous immigration camps as lessons for others mended perfectly with the artistic medium of fused glass.

The exhibit consists of six beautifully detailed and touching glass panels, as well as a book of poetry by Frances Elson’s sister, a memoir to her great-uncle, a compilation of Cantorial and Yiddish music, and much more. “My hope is that through sharing this project, I can share the legacy of my parents and express the fragility of our freedoms through the fragility and great strength of fused glass”, artist Frances Elson expressed.
