Events by location: Museum of Tolerance

When artist and former iconic coat designer Ilie Wacs began work with his sister, Deborah Strobin on their memoir An Uncommon Journey, he rediscovered a suitcase stuffed with the family’s identity papers. The contents inspired Wacs to create “A Gathering Storm: The Vienna Papers, 1938”, a unique 15-piece collection of artwork which derives its imagery from stamps, seals, passports, and other documentation required for Jews that began with Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass). Wachs and Strobin will be on hand to discuss their experiences and introduce the exhibit at the Museum of Tolerance.
