The Rosenwald Gala

October 12, 2017 | 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

A page from the Giant Bible of Mainz, 1452-53, part of the Rosenwald Collection at the Library of Congress

Join us as we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Rosenwald Fund and introduce a digital public history project about Lessing J. Rosenwald, collector of rare books and prints, who bequeathed the largest gift of art ever donated to the United States.

Abington Art Center is fortunate to inhabit the former Rosenwald estate, Alverthorpe, and its mission for social engagement and respect for the arts is inspired by the history of this remarkable family.
