Join the Art Center on June 29 for a special evening with Wyatt Gallery to discuss and sign copies of his new book Jewish Treasures of the Caribbean.
Jewish Treasures of the Caribbean (Schiffer, winter 2017) presents over 200 stunning color images by the award-winning photographer Wyatt Gallery that highlight the fascinating and little known history of the earliest Jewish communities of the New World, as seen through the remaining historic sites in Barbados, Curaçao, Jamaica, Nevis, St. Croix, St. Thomas, St. Eustatius, and Suriname. These synagogues and Jewish cemeteries, the oldest in the Western Hemisphere, reveal the strength of the Jewish people and the surprisingly diverse cultural history of the Caribbean. The photographs were taken from 2009 to 2015 and are organized by location and in chronological order by the earliest known Jewish communities.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase after the discussion.
