Violins of Hope

Feb. 26 – March 24, 2019

The Violins of Hope is a collection of restored instruments played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust. These instruments have survived concentration camps, pogroms and many long journeys to tell remarkable stories of injustice, suffering, resilience and survival. The Violins of Hope exhibition is coming to Scottsdale Arts to facilitate a citywide dialogue about music, art, social justice and free expression.




All That You Can’t Leave Behind

March 30 – May 2, 2019

During the Holocaust, families were often faced with packing up a few belongings to accompany them on a frightful journey to an unknown destination. Inspired by the Violins of Hope, students reflect upon material culture to consider what stories everyday belongings tell about the human experience. The resulting found-object assemblages reveal the communicative and inspiring qualities of personal items.
