Event Description

In The East Gallery
Monsters and Miracles: A Journey through Jewish Picture Books
October 15, 2010 - January 23, 2011
Free with Museum Admission (Regular Museum Admission: $9 Adults, $6 Seniors 65+/Youth 1-18/Student/ Teacher, $22.50 Family, Free Members/Children under 1)
A collaboration with the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles travels to The Carle and The National Yiddish Book Center on October 15, 2010 where it will be on view until January 23, 2011. This ambitious exhibition explores the evolution of Jewish picture books from illuminated manuscripts, alef-bets [books of Hebrew letters], and Passover Haggadot to stories that consider monsters [golems, dybbuks, and wild things], life in the shtetl, and the role of migration in Jewish life. Curated by Ilan Stavans, Lewis-Sebring Professor of Latin American and Latino Culture at Amherst College, and independent scholar, Neal Sokol, the exhibition comprises a “who’s who” of picture-book artists, including, among others, Mordicai Gerstein, Nonny Hogrogian, Trina Schart Hyman, Maurice Sendak, Uri Shulevitz, and William Steig. There is an 80-page illustrated catalogue.
