Public Tour - Recalling a Lost World: David Labkovski Brings the Stories of Sholem Aleichem to Life
Join us for a virtual tour that will highlight our temporary exhibit, "Recalling a Lost World: David Labkovski Brings the Stories of Sholem Aleichem to Life," and contextualize it with the Museum's galleries, specifically the first gallery that is dedicated to the 'world that was.'
Time & Location
Nov 15, 2020, 2:00 PM PST
For artist David Labkovski, reading and illustrating the stories of Yiddish author Sholem Aleichem was a return to his own childhood in Vilna. He illustrated the small, everyday moments of life in the shtetl that Sholem Aleichem captured in his stories. Labkovski wanted to commemorate the Jewish ‘world that was’—not just how the Jewish people died, but how they lived for centuries before the Holocaust. Your docent will guide you through the exhibit and relate impressive artifacts from our collection to Labkovski's illustrations.
