For A Sweet New Year

Jury Award
For A Sweet New Year, The Jewish Museum, Cooper Joseph Studio

Although store-window design is in itself a genre, an emphasis on selling merchandise often dominates the visual theme. To celebrate the Jewish New Year at The Jewish Museum in New York, the curator wanted to use the museum’s windows as a means to celebrate (and, in a way, advertise, the Jewish New Year). She requested something playful, but reflective of the educational mission of the museum and respectful of the building’s historic façade.
