Vulcan® Park and Museum to Open New Exhibit in Its Linn-Henley Gallery – Darkness into Life: Alabama’s Holocaust Survivors Through Photography and Art


Birmingham, Ala. — Vulcan® Park and Museum (VPM) will once again transition its Linn-Henley Gallery into a new work of art. This time, partnering with the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center, VPM will bring you Darkness Into Life: Alabama’s Holocaust Survivors Through Photography and Art. The exhibit will open to the public this Friday, September 25.

In this sensitive exhibit of photography by Becky Seitel and art by Mitzi J. Levin, one is given special glimpses into the private memories of some of Alabama’s Holocaust survivors. These are bold, thought-provoking, heart-warming paintings and photographs accompanied by educational narratives that tell the stories shared by the survivors.

“We are looking forward to our partnership with the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center to bring this exhibit to our Linn-Henley Gallery,” said President and CEO Darlene Negrotto. “In keeping with our mission to share the history of Birmingham’s diverse community, this display portrays the triumphant stories of human survival and the impact these survivors had on our community upon re-entry into society.”

In correlation with the exhibit, Vulcan® Park and Museum will offer “Survivor Talks” and other events to bring this history to life.

The exhibit will be on display until May 16, 2016. For more details or associated events, contact Morgan Berney, Director of Marketing & PR, or see
