Artistic Perspectives on Pregnancy… from the Shtetl

In a new art series, Debra Olin draws inspiration from common superstitions,
medical teachings and the findings of a 1912 questionnaire from the Russian Pale of Settlement, on pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood. “Every Protection” explores these themes through monoprint collage and installation art. The exhibition is on view at the Museum at Eldridge Street in New York City through April 24, 2022. Find out more at
