Motifs in Jewish Art

Location: Hillel
Dates: Fall 2013–Fall 2014



Motifs in Jewish Art is the fifth in a series of student-curated exhibitions focusing on the Henry Sonneborn Collection of Judaica. This exhibit considers religious artifacts to draw attention to the vibrant artistic production of the Jewish people, and revises the common assumption that the visual arts were forbidden by Jewish law and custom. Textual and material sources attest to the vibrant art of the Jewish people.
