The Jewish Museum is exhibiting “Masterpieces and Curiosities: The Benguiat Collection,” featuring more than 30 works from the Museum’s H. Ephraim and Mordecai Benguiat Family Collection, through July 2020. The decorative and ceremonial art includes a newly restored Torah ark curtain from Istanbul (ca. 1735) and an ornately embroidered silk 18th-century Bulgarian pillowcase for a seder.
The exhibition was organized by associate curator Aviva Weintraub, who also is the director of the New York Jewish Film Festival. For more information, call (212) 423-3200 or go to TheJewishMuseum.org.
