Our goal is to give the BJHS the greatest range in possibility in both budget and exhibition size therefore we have come up with different sizes of traveling exhibitions to meet their needs and the space that the exhibition travels to. The first size is a mailable booklet that could be sent out as a promotional device for their organization as well as tell a condensed story of Bolechow. The second size is a small kiosk 3 panel system that can fit in a small space or in a corner. This will be the easiest for transportation and start to tell a larger story of Bolechow. The third size is a modular system for a space around 12′ x 24′. The Eldridge Street Synagogue space in NYC is around that size and a good site to start with. Finally we will be designing a large exhibition for a larger space, 25′ x 50′ that could be used at venues like the Holocaust Museum in DC.
Bolechow Heritage Project
We have been researching cities for the traveling exhibition to visit and started putting a presentation together to show pictures and information. So far we have found four great sites in which we think there would be interest for our exhibition. The Eldridge Street Synagogue here in New York City, the United States Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C, the Spertus Institute for Jewish Studies in Chicago and American Jewish Archives Cincinnati are our top picks.
Here is a collection of photographs showing the sites listed above:
