"We the People" at Walk Bye - Congregation B'nai Jacob, Jersey City - 2021

 “We the People” at part of the group exhibition “- /ˈradək(ə)l/ - roots, body & fruit” on January 28, 2021 at the Congregation B'nai Jacob of Jersey City - 176 West Side Ave, Jersey City, NJ 07305

Curated by Catalina Aranguren 

The show is inspired by the Jewish holiday Tu b'Shevat - translated literally as “New Year for the trees”. It is celebrated in contemporary Israel, as an ecological awareness day, and trees are planted in celebration. Walk-Bye held open submissions for artwork starting mid December, calling on local artists to explore the duality of how a festival of trees, growth and prosperity happens in the winter within the context of personal, spiritual, and intellectual growth.
