Description:

JEWISH MUSEUM OF FLORIDA 

NEW EXHIBIT

 

This exhibit of paintings and prints by English artist Naomi Alexander, ROI, records the last remnants of Jewish heritage in the country of Lithuania. When you think of Lithuania at the time when the majority of the population was Jewish, you may think of images from films like Fiddler on the Roof, or Yentl. But what do we know about what this area looks like today, in the 21st century?

 

That is the quest that drew Alexander to the place of her ancestors. Alexander, who is of Lithuanian origin, was invited to be artist in residence at the Europas Parkas Sculpture Museum in Vilnius. She traveled the country to create artwork depicting her impressions of the people and their communities. To tell the expanded story, the Museum makes a Florida connection using photographs and artifacts from Floridian Jews whose origins are from Lithuania.
