Join the Forward in celebrating the opening of an exhibit at the Museum at Eldridge Street in Manhattan, featuring the storied publication’s treasured vintage photographic press plates.
“Pressed: Images from the Jewish Daily Forward” is a collaboration with Eldridge Street and the Bowne Print Shop at the Seaport Museum. The opening is Wednesday, October 23 from 6 to 8 p.m., and those who attend will have the first glimpse at the pieces chosen from the Forward’s vast archival collection. “Pressed” will feature a selection of metal plates used to print images in the newspaper back in the day, along with actual prints made from the historic plates using traditional equipment.
Exhibition curator Nancy Johnson and Forward archivist Chana Pollack will speak at the event about the remarkable images and moments highlighted throughout the museum.
