About the Exhibit

The Danforth Museum of Art is pleased to present lively original paintings by illustrator Adam Gustavson. The artwork on view was created for the book The Yankee at the Seder, written by Elka Weber.

The exhibition is displayed in participation with the 2011 Framingham Reads Together Program. A town-wide program that focuses on educating people about the Civil War during it's 150th Anniversary through exciting events.

About the Book

The Yankee at the Seder is set at the very end of the Civil War, in a Virginia town. Young Jacob wants more than anything to show that the South is not ready to concede defeat to the North.  But then Myer Levy, a Jewish Yankee soldier, joins Jacob's family Passover meal.  Gathered around the Seder table, the group discusses what it means to be free. This touching, heart-felt story shows how cultural and religious connections can stretch across many boundaries.
