Detroit Jewish Book Fair Presents Mary Gabriel, author of Ninth Street Women
The JCC's Annual Jewish Book Fair is a community-wide cultural and literary event, attracting a large and varied audience of more than 20,000 people of all ages. It is the oldest and largest Jewish book fair in the nation.
This year we are welcoming the author of Ninth Street Women, Mary Gabriel. Ninth Street Women charts the rise of five female abstract Expressionist painters set amid the most turbulent social and political period of modern times.
This impassioned, wild, sometimes tragic, always exhilarating chronicle is the story of those who dared to enter the male-dominated world of twentieth-century abstract painting--not as muses but as artists - and burst open the door to the art world for themselves and others to come.
A free docent-led tour connected to the art discussed will be available immediately after the program concludes.
The Detroit Film Theatre is generously supported by Buddy's Pizza and your tri-county millage investment in the DIA.
