Weaving a Life: Norway, Chicago, and Judaism

Saturday, February 21, 1:00 p.m.

An emigrant from Norway, weaver Berit Engen combines her Norwegian heritage with her embrace of Jewish culture to produce insightful tapestries — contemporary commentaries on Jewish texts and living. Senior curator Olivia Mahoney joins Engen for a conversation about the artist’s move to the Chicago area, her thoughts about Judaism, and how the political and cultural scenes, landscape, and expressions of Chicago have influenced and inspired her work.
