Unifying the Haggadah: Revisiting Its Creation

Unifying the Haggadah image.

May 5 – 19, 2011

Delve into the pages of the Haggadah, an important Jewish text for the Passover ritual, and learn how artists have negotiated its illustration from the Middle Ages until today. This graduate student thesis exhibition, curated by Shannon Diener, explores the changes and developments in Haggadot imagery from early illuminated manuscripts to printed versions.

Join us for an Opening Reception Thursday, May 5, 2011 from 5-7 pm.
