Mark Podwal Presents His Newest Exhibit: “The Terezin Portfolio”
This handsome portfolio of prints, created by alumnus Mark Podwal from a series of original paintings and drawings, was originally exhibited at the Terezin Ghetto Museum in the Czech Republic in 2014.
Each print contains an image of an instance of the tragedies and injustices experienced by Jewish communities throughout history, related to verses from the Book of Psalms.
Each sheet is folded to resemble the page of a book, directly referencing the term “People of the Book” used to characterize the Jewish people and the Torah. Accompanying Podwal’s portfolio will be images from bibles, illustrated books, letters and documents from the Inquisition, European Diaspora, Holocaust, and other historic eras, from the collection of the Jewish Theological Seminary Library and the Godwin-Ternbach Museum.
History buffs will not want to miss this incredible exhibit!
