Jupiter Library Hosts Peace Clylinder Project Randy Dean Blakely, Ph.D
The library hosted an interactive art piece by Raheleh Filsoofi and Linda Behar on April 13. In this project, a ceramic replica of the cylinder with the original declaration engraved on the surface and a wooden roller covered by a polymer plate that holds the last chapter of the Book of Esther in Hebrew are used in performance to create prints on clay and paper. The artists, Behar, a Jewish immigrant, and Filsoofi, an Iranian immigrant, bring diverse communities together for conversation. Learn more.
