2013 Max May Memorial Holocaust Art Exhibition

November 24 2013 - January 12 2014
2013 Max May Memorial Holocaust Art Exhibition

Each year, Renate Frydman and her family honor the memory of her grandfather, Max May, an artist and architect, by sponsoring an art contest that encourages area students in grades 5 – 12 to focus on the Holocaust as an inspiration for a world that is free of racism, disrespect and intolerance. Held under the auspices of the Holocaust Education Committee of the Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton, a selection of these works is mounted at The DAI. Framing of the art is sponsored by Allen Seymour in memory of his wife, Carole.

The 2013 exhibition featured work from the following schools: Dayton Regional STEM School (teacher Arch Grieve), Hillel Academy (teacher Susan Ayers), Chaminade Julienne High School (teacher Diana Barr), Archbishop Alter High School (teacher Allyson Shank) and Warner Middle School (teacher Diane Greenberg).

We thank the family for encouraging teachers to help their students express artistically that we cannot change the past, but we can change the future. Entries for the 2014 contest are due by Friday, April 4. For more information, visit
