Women of the Book Exhibit
Thursday, September 22, 2016 - Friday, September 30, 2016
A collection of 54 limited edition artworks, each representing one of the 54 weekly Torah portions and completed by a different female artist from around the world.
Women of the Book, founded by Social Practice artist, Shoshana Gugenheim, is an international collaboration of 54 Jewish women artists. The selected artworks, created on parchment – one for each Torah portion – acknowledge the emergence of Jewish women artists as visionaries and creative interpreters of text. The exhibition will be open to the public and on display at the Stroum Jewish Community Center from September 22, 2016 through September 30, 2016.
Join the JCC for a celebration and reception on the opening night of the exhibit, 6:30 pm on Thursday, Sept. 22! Associate curator Judith Margolis will lead a tour of the exhibit. Details and RSVP here.
On Thursday Sept. 29th, Prof. Mika Ahuvia will give a special lecture as part of this exhibit. Find out more here.
