Join photographer and author Marisa Scheinfeld for a lively discussion of the “Borscht Belt”—a region in the southernmost part of the Catskill Mountains that was once the playground of American Jews. Scheinfeld, who grew up in the region, has spent the past five years documenting the dramatic degradation of some of the most famous Borscht Belt hotels, resorts, and bungalow colonies. As a special addition to the lecture, Scheinfeld will exhibit 2-D and 3-D original objects and Borscht Belt memorabilia from her personal collection. Book signing to follow.
The State Museum, State Library and State Archives are temporarily Closed.
