Power of Protest: The Movement to Free the Soviet Jews
In the gallery: January 2–31
The movement to free Soviet Jews provides a fascinating example of how American activists have played, and continue to play, significant roles in promoting religious liberty at home and abroad. Drawing on 1960s-era social protest movements, they responded to the restrictions forced upon refuseniks by staging public demonstrations, holding a massive rally in Washington D.C., and calling for politicians at all levels of the government to speak out against Soviet oppression. The exhibition will serve as a reminder of the unique promise of religious freedom in America and our continuing responsibility to preserve and protect that freedom.
Power of Protest: The Movement to Free Soviet Jews is organized by the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia and this project was made possible in part by the institute of Museum and Library Services MA-10-16-0208-16
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 7, from 5:30–7:30pm
In the gallery: February 3–28
My paintings are as much about what I have left in them as they are about what I have taken away. Drawings are layered on top of each other and then erased and manipulated. Each and every piece explores what is intimate, what is on display -- what cherished, what abandoned. Within pieces, each image unfurls then curls up with itself, folding and unfolding at the same time.
