Learn how the color palettes, fabric, and trim choices for the Museum’s three silver Torah ensembles reflect the artistic and social environment from which they originate. Durham-based fine art conservator Ruth Cox also discusses how the period of time and synagogues' locations influenced the concept, design, and fabrication of the mantles she designed and made for the NCMA.
