Opening Reception for Pressed: Images from the Jewish Daily Forward
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
For more than 120 years, the Forward has given an eager American Jewish audience a unique mix of news, culture and opinion. Published on the Lower East Side beginning in 1897, this Yiddish-language newspaper had a circulation of more than 275,000 in its heyday. Now a digital-only publication appearing in both English and Yiddish, the Forward maintains a vast archive tracing the history of the printed publication and the stories it covered. Pressed dives into this archive, presenting a selection of metal plates used to print images in the paper, along with contemporary prints made, using the historic plates, with traditional equipment at Bowne & Co., Stationers.
Venue: Museum at Eldridge Street
12 Eldridge Street
