The evening also includes a "kneading" exercise in the art of Jewish cooking featuring the challah mavens Erin David and Robin Kay; cantor Ann Brown will present a new song in Yiddish.
"I'm going to try to prepare a new musical setting for Emma Lazaru's poetic masterpiece 'The New Colossus,'" said Berg.

Viewing new art at Creative Spirits Gallery

Piatt uses glass and acrylics together to develop one-of-a-kind designs that explore negative space, and interrogate both material and technological boundaries.
