      Yiddish Book Center

      1021 West Street, Amherst MA 01002

      At the peak of its popularity, New York’s Catskills region—dubbed the Borscht Belt because of its popularity with Jewish vacationers—was home to hundreds of hotels, vacation bungalows, and clubs where top comedians and other performers regularly appeared. But the region’s economic decline saw many of them close, falling victim to fire, vandalism, wrecking balls, and decay. Photographer Marisa Scheinfeld spent years documenting the fate of those places through a series of evocative images, now collected in her new book, which also includes essays by Stefan Kanfer and Jenna Weissman Joselit. Scheinfeld will sign copies of the book after her talk. 2pm – 3:30pm.

      Clark Art Institute

      225 South Street, Williamstown MA 01267

      Daily until January 31, 2017

      When photographs were first widely produced and distributed during the second half of the nineteenth century, they offered viewers new ways to discover unfamiliar people, distant places, and things previously unknown to them. This exhibition considers these three broad groups of subjects that manifested photographically during the medium’s first seventy years. During this exciting period, images were captured for many different reasons—from documentation to curiosity—and they came in many forms, including deluxe book illustrations, portable portrait cards, and frame-worthy landscape views. On view through February 5, 2017.
