The new exhibit in the main lobby at HSL features information about the upcoming exhibit and also some related materials from the library.  HSL partnered with the Fulginiti to open this exhibit and the exhibit contains materials from both organizations.

Four Questions by Judy Chicago and Donald Woodman

The Fulginiti measured the case and added the great banner at the back of the case.  The images on the two sides of the case also show previous Holocaust-related exhibits that visited the Fulginiti.  On the left are images from the exhibit Four Questions by Judy Chicago and Donald Woodman, and on the right IWASWILLBE: The Holocaust Series, Paintings by Geoffrey Laurence.
