My Synagogue is in Prague: Documentary on Mark Podwal

A Czech television documentary about the life and art of Mark Podwal is now on view at youtube, with english subtitles.

It chronicles Podwal's fascinating involvement with Prague and the Altneuschul. The textiles he created for the synagogue were shown at an exhibit at the Yeshiva University Museum in New York. His works on paper have been shown at the Jewish Museum in Prague. Podwal collaborated with Academy Award winning filmmaker Allan Miller on the documentary House of Life: The Old Jewish Cemetery in Prague, narrated by Claire Bloom. In 2009 and 2010, the film was broadcast on PBS.

Exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the world, his art is represented in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Carnegie Museum of ArtFogg Art Museum, the Jewish Museum in Prague, and the Library of Congress.
