A Collage of Customs, Iconic Jewish Woodcuts Revised for the Twenty-First Century

This exhibition featuring works by artist Mark Podwal offers inventive interpretations of woodcuts from the 16th-century Sefer Minhagim (Book of Customs) and combines lighthearted, imaginative whimsy with insightful commentary on Jewish customs and history. He not only injects a sense of playfulness into religious objects and practices but also invites deeper contemplation and appreciation of their significance.
