Exhibition by CH photographer Daniel Levin opens at Jewish Federation of Cleveland
The Jewish Federation of Cleveland announces the opening of Amnon’s Workshop, a photographic documentary featuring the work of Daniel Levin, celebrated Cleveland photographer, Cuyahoga Community College associate professor, and Cleveland Heights resident. All are invited to meet the artist at a free open house on Sunday, Sept. 20, 1–4 p.m., in the Roe Green Gallery at the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Building, 25701 Science Park Drive in Beachwood. Gallery talks will be at 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.
The exhibit follows Levin’s travels to Israel, where he documented the work of master violin maker Amnon Weinstein. Amnon’s Workshop captures intimate images of the man behind “Violins of Hope” as he lovingly restores and gives new voice to stringed instruments that survived the horrors of the Holocaust, even when their owners perished.
Amnon’s Workshop is just one exhibit in Violins of Hope Cleveland, a landmark project among seven nonprofit organizations in Cleveland. The focal point of Violins of Hope Cleveland is a unique collection of violins that were witness to Jewish perseverance during the Holocaust and convey a story of endurance and resilience through the power of music.
