Dear Carl, By (sic) Carrots, Love Mollie:
When Jewish Food was the Family Business
An audio-visual exhibition of artifacts, photographs and contemporary artwork
Guest Curator: Diane Pieri
In addition: Stirring the Pot - A Silent Auction that benefited the Temple Judea Museum in which artists re-imagined humble wooden kitchen spoons as unique works of art.
DESCRIPTION: This exhibition offered a snapshot of how caterers, deli owners and bakers serve their client families and of the loving involvement of their own families in their businesses. In addition, artifacts from very early 20th century home kitchens were displayed to contrast the difference between the convenience of kosher store bought food and the stark conditions of early kitchens. Finally, artists were invited to create works that reflected upon the exhibition themes and artifacts.
