Visit the Museum in March to view Sanibel artist, Myra Roberts’ newest collection related to the Holocaust.
Over the past year, Myra has been working in mixed media to create this collection that depicts the willingness of the average citizen to be blind to the facts of the Holocaust. Using period interior design paintings and historic photos from the Holocaust, Myra has created a collection of collages sure to inspire discussion.
