Recently Mark Podwal created textiles for the Altneuschul in Prague; they were shown at an exhibit at the Yeshiva University Museum in New York. It received lots of press; Jewish Art Salon's Founding Member Richard McBee's article Old and New: Podwal's Altneuschul Paroches can be viewed here.
These textiles will be dedicated March 15 and the American Ambassador will give a reception to celebrate the dedication. Czech TV will film the dedication and do a 27 minute documentary on Podwal's life. Additional funds were raised for a white curtain for the High Holidays.
In addition February 14 from 5:30 to 7:30 is the opening reception for Mark Podwal's new Haggadah works at the Forum Gallery. More info later.
