Persist and Rise from the Ashes

 

Persist and Rise from Ashes was commissioned un 2019 commission for the Museum of Fine Art, Boston's annual Hannukah celebration. The large-scale Hannukiah (Menorah) included poems and citations printed on fabrics and illuminated to create sculptural flames. The selected texts were intended to connect the story of Hanukkah and Jewish people’s fight for freedom to modern-day struggles for justice and equality.

 

The Light from Within

The Light From Within was commissioned by The Jewish Arts Collaborative in 2020 as part of the "Brighter Connected" initiative, which brought the light of Hanukkah to eight Boston-area neighborhoods through works of art in windows. Designed in collaboration with teen artists in the Artists For Humanity program who reside in the neighborhood and employees of the Bowdoin Street Health Care Center, this installation is focused on themes of community and resiliency.
