“Light and Love: An Altered Book Project”, is a multidisciplinary artmaking project created by artist Caryn T. Davis, which focuses on the diversity of Jewish communities and the importance of combating antisemitism.

These altered books were made in collaboration with students from the Holocaust Center at Wagner College and participants from the New York Public Library at St. George.

Join us for the culminating event! Meet the artists behind the altered books as they present their work, share information about the Jewish communities they learned about, and the significance of combating antisemitism for everyone.

This project is made possible by a DCA Premier Grant from Staten Island Arts, with public funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
