History buffs and music enthusiasts alike will find something to love at Hotel Congress, 311 E. Congress Street, this weekend.
Exhibition Duration: January 8th through February 4th
The Hotel Congress Lobby Gallery presents an exciting new exhibition entitled Temple of Shadows, composed of photographs by local artists Abigail Gumbiner, Annu Palakunnathu Matthew and David H. Wells. This long term project, almost twenty years in the making and never before shown to the public, is a collection of fifteen prints that portray Temple Emanu-El throughout its renovation. The juxtaposition of the black and white photographs, representing the pre-renovation, and the color photographs, representing the post-renovation, connote feelings of re-purpose for the present Jewish History Museum.
