Dessel’s SOLO EXHIBIT at the Gomez Mill House EXTENDED THROUGH SEPTEMBER 7th
Dessel’s new body of work is based on her research as a Frankel Fellow, Frankel Institute for Advanced Judaic Studies University of Michigan (2013/2014), on the life and work of Martha Gruening (1889-1937).
“Brick in a Soft Hat” at the Gomez Mill House (GMH) — the oldest existing Jewish residence in North America — commemorates this national landmark’s 300th Anniversary. Gruening, owner of the GMH 1919-1923, purchased the Mill House to create an International Libertarian School.
