This exhibition showcases a colorful patchwork quilt bearing Eastern European and American imagery. A wonderful testimony to the acculturation process undergone by newly arrived Jewish immigrants, the quilt was originally owned by a Russian Jewish family that likely arrived in America during the late 19th century. Curated by Claudia Nahson, Morris & Eva Feld Curator.
