Mini Grants Approved
June 17, 2010
Sutter County Children and Families Commission
has approved Community mini grant applications for a total $25,014 and Childcare
provider applicants for $20,000 in mini grants for the 2010/2011 Fiscal Year. The
commission approved the applications at the June 16th meeting. Please see the attached lists
for the successful mini grant applicants and funding amounts.
The traveling exhibit currently at the Community Memorial Museum of Sutter County features
personal portraits and stories of Holocaust survivors who call California home. Noted
photographer Evvy Eisen undertook a 15-year project to create photographic portraits of
survivors living in California and to collect their personal stories. The resulting
exhibition, Multiply by Six Million: Portraits and Stories of Holocaust Survivors, offers
viewers a personal perspective on one of the defining events of the 20th century. Survivors
tell their stories in hopes that the seeds of today’s intolerance and bigotry are recognized
in time to present tomorrow’s genocides.
The exhibit describes the horrors that the survivors experienced in Europe during the
Holocaust and how they then came to the United States to create meaningful lives and contribute
to society in their adopted country. Survivor Frank Roubicek shares, “The horror years of the
wartime taught me how to appreciate the basic values of life and to fully appreciate the good
things it has to offer.” Multiply by Six Million includes 37 stunning black and white
photographs and is accompanied by a 24-minute DVD of survivors’ stories. Interpretive text
allows visitors to understand historical events in Europe leading up to the Holocaust and
contemplate current concerns about intolerance and genocide.
On the evening of Thursday, June 24th, photographer Evvy Eisen will present a program at the
museum featuring the DVD and talking about the project. A brief reception at 7:00 p.m. will
precede the 7:30 program. Admission is free.
The exhibit tour was organized by the California Exhibition Resources Alliance (CERA), with
support from photographer Evvy Eisen. CERA is a network of professionally operated museums and
cultural organizations that collaborate to create and tour smaller, affordable, high quality
exhibitions that enhance civic engagement and human understanding. CERA is generously supported
by The James Irvine Foundation, the William Randolph Hearst Foundation, and the California
Council for the Humanities.
The exhibit will be on display at the Community Memorial Museum of Sutter County through August
1st. The museum is located at 1333 Butte House Road in Yuba City. Open hours are Tuesday
through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4:00 p.m.
Admission is free. For more information, call the museum at (530) 822-7141.
