The Hare with Amber Eyes at the Jewish Museum
March 27, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$5 – $15
The Hare with Amber Eyes tells the story of the Ephrussi family—celebrated in the 2010 memoir and The New York Times bestseller of the same name by Edmund de Waal—and showcases the breadth and depth of their illustrious collection. The exhibition explores the family’s rise to prominence and splendor in the first half of the nineteenth century, followed by a focus on the prolific collector and historian of art, Charles Ephrussi, to the inter-war years, and finally World War II, when the family lost its fortune and collection to Nazi looting.
This interpretive installation uses family and loaned artifacts that trace the turbulent history of their movements through place and time and examines the ways in which objects can function as storytellers, symbols of resilience, and monuments of a family legacy.
Your ticket includes timed entry to the exhibition, as well as general admission to the museum. The group will be given a tour by a STUDIO volunteer throughout the exhibition.
The Virginia Club Book Club will also be reading and discussing The Hare with Amber Eyes on April 19 – participants are encouraged to attend both events. Sign up for Book Club here!
