Weekday Sketchers at Eldridge Street Museum and Synagogue

Weekday Sketchers at Eldridge Street Museum and Synagogue

This week  we celebrate one of our own, while visiting another tribute to the immigrant story that forms the basic fabric of New York City.  Formerly a practicing congregation, the building fell into terrible disrepair with the exit of the Jewish population from the Lower East Side.  The Eldridge Street Project was formed to repair and preserve this building and the heritage of this area.  Embroidered on this legacy is Adrianne Ottenberg's exhibit "28 Remarkable Women and One Scoundrel" highlighting the life of women who have made a significant contribution to NYC and especially the LES.  Adrianne has captured their lives on beautiful silk banners displayed throughout the building.  Bloomberg Connects has added to the experience by providing audio introductions of the women who tell their stories through taped narratives.

Join us as we explore the lives of these women, some whom you have heard of (Emma Lazarus, Emma Goldberg and Lillian Ward) and many you will meet for the first time.  Set in the exquisitely renovated building with beautifully carved woodwork, colorful stained glass and intricately painted walls, you will surely find many scenes to capture in your sketchbooks.

And for a Bonus, Adrianne will be joining us to provide information about her exhibit and paintings.
