Art about multiculturalism, created at a
residency
This digital photograph was created
for an exhibit at the
Holocaust Center of Detroit, which
opened February 2012.  It's one of
a group of four that were part of:
Silent Witnesses: Migration
Stories through Synagogues  
Transformed, Rebuilt
or Left Behind

I used an old fairy tale book and
photos of former synagogues in
the Bronx (where I grew up).
