Discover how the design elements for the Museum’s three silver Torah ensembles reflect the artistic and social environments from which they originate. Durham-based fine art conservator Ruth Cox also discusses how the period or time and synagogues' locations influenced the concept, design, and fabrication of the mantles she created for the NCMA.

These seminars begin with a lecture by curators or other experts, and the discussion continues over a lunch catered by Iris restaurant. Register online or call the Museum Box Office, (919) 715-5923. Registration and payment for the combined program required by 4 pm on the Tuesday before the event.
