A walk through of the December 2009 - January 2010 exhibition by CHAP on the Orchard Street Shul. This was an artist organized exhibition of new works by artists responding to the the environment, history, or architecture of a state-designated history site. Participating artists came from diverse cultural backgrounds and artistic disciplines, volunteering their time to create a new model of artist - community partnership. An accompanying Project Book with historical essays by Hasia Diner, Walter Cahn, Barry Herman, Hana Iverson and Karen Schiff put the exhibition in context.
Sound in this video includes a commentary and interview by Binnie Klein, WPKN, and music by Za'faran (Christa Steingruber, Jürg Walter, Ursina Gruber) and by Yosef Gottesman.
