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.

Venue Description: Open Sat.-Tues., 11am-5:45pm; Thurs., 11am-8pm; Fri., 11am-4pm. Closed Wed. Admission is $12 for adults, $10 seniors, $7.50 students, under 12 free. Thurs. 5-8pm is "pay what you wish."
