This unique venture brought together an interesting mix of people, some seeking a piece of home, others simply bearing the curiosity of an outsider.
In attendance were David Wakstein, the esteemed curator visiting from Israel, Eugene Lemay and Yigal Ozeri, the founders of MECA. (Photo: David and Eugene greeting Mana Contemporary artist Carole Feuerman)
