The Arts Center hosted the internationally acclaimed "White Rose (Weisse Rose) Exhibit" from Germany from May through September 2010. During this time over a thousand visitors, local and from afar, were able to view this moving collection of photographs, drawings, and poems that documented the true story of the daring resistance by young college students to Hitler's Nazi regime. These students gave their lives in order to inform the German people of the atrocities that were being committed. Their resistance
movement was peaceful and appealed to the conscience and true spirit of the German people.
Hundreds of children from neighboring schools contributed art work to the theme of white roses. Their art work was displayed along side the traveling White Rose Exhibit on loan from Munich, Germany.
The participation of the children and the large number of guests were
testimonies that the message of the brave members of the White Rose still lives on in the hearts of those who hear about this group's courage to stand up for the truth.
