Treasure Hunt: Ashkenaz Heritage in The Met 

Hosted By: Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program ("CSP")

Join the Orange County Community Scholar Program as they explore Ashkenaz works in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection, how they were acquired, what they tell us about Jewish artistic heritage, and what is missing from the collection. Throughout her career, Boehm has seen evidence of Jewish heritage erased from the map, although not always this literally. Working on the 2005 Met exhibit, “Prague, The Crown of Bohemia, 1347–1437,” Barbara “was determined that in the exhibit there would be a section talking about Jewish life in Prague during the medieval period.” “What can we do at this late date, with so much destruction — how do you put this important material on everybody’s radar? To me as an art historian this is Jewish heritage, but it is also part of the world’s great artistic heritage, for everyone to see.”
