As part of the arts organization Have Art: Will Travel!, which Ms. Stein founded, this three-part exhibition features 10 female heroes from the Holocaust. Each hero is represented by a tapestry that tells her story and shines light on her courageous acts during a time of severe atrocity. It is open to the public through July 14, and by appointment until August 2.

“I did research and found that these women were unbelievable,” Ms. Stein explained. “I want to help introduce these 10 heroes—most of whom nobody’s ever heard of. People only know of Anne Frank.”

In addition to the Heroic Tapestries, this exhibition consists of 20 “Spoon to Shell” sculptures meant to highlight sexual abuse, and one “Protector” sculpture with a Wonder Woman shadow to symbolize a brave defender. It also includes an educational program and interactive events such as lectures and performances.”
