Scenes from the Collection: Exploring Identity at the Jewish Museum


Thursday, May 11, 2023
3 – 4 pm EDT
Zoom, Virtual Program

Join us for the second virtual event of Members Appreciation Month, and hear from Nelly Silagy Benedek, Deputy Director, Education and Programs in a lecture exploring how artists have addressed identity in their works of art—through images and through texts depicted in images. This talk will consider who frames a person's or community's identity and the ways in which individuals take ownership of how they are represented.

Capacity is limited. Please RSVP to confirm your attendance.

This program is presented with captions through Zoom. The Jewish Museum is committed to making its virtual programs accessible to all.

This program is exclusive to Jewish Museum members—to join, please visit or call 212.660.1519.
