Thanks to the generosity of United Airlines and H-E-B, admission to Holocaust Museum Houston (HMH) will be free every second Saturday of the month this summer: June 12, July 10, and August 14. During this time, visitors can experience the special juried exhibition, Withstand: Latinx Art in Times of Conflict, as well as unique dance and theatre performances, story times in English and Spanish, curator-led tours, and much more. Though free, ticket reservations are required.

On display through to October 17, 2021, Withstand: Latinx Art in Times of Conflict, explores themes of social justice and human rights through 100 artworks by Houston Latinx artists. Border relations, gender roles, domestic violence, the immigrant experience, and social and political turmoil are all depicted in the thought-provoking pieces. In addition to Withstand, admission includes entry to the museum’s permanent Holocaust, Human Rights, Diaries, and Samuel Bak galleries.
