In a State of Becoming: Inuit Art from the Collection of Rabbi Harry Sky
February 14, 2012 - February 24, 2013

This exhibition of Rabbi Harry Sky's donated collection of Inuit transformation carvings focuses on the parallels Rabbi Sky sees between his own teachings – that people are constantly changing and transforming themselves as they live their lives – and Inuit carving of human/animal transformations.

Sponsored by the Russell and Janet Doubleday Endowment Fund.
