For most of us, the concept of Jewish art conjures up images from the paintings of Marc Chagall. This year’s International Arts Experience at the Madden Arts Center promises to embrace the spirit of Chagall’s paintings, bringing to life core Jewish traditions that celebrate relationships, family, music, symbolism and ethnic roots.

Artistic examples of Judaic fine crafts that represent cultural rituals such as the menorah, mezuzah and chuppah add a sense of history and customs. And throughout, the exhibit wraps the art with references that recognize Jewish contributions to the performing and literary arts.

Exhibiting Artists:  Debra Band, Gabriel Bass, Stewart Cherlin, Melanie Dankowicz, Temma Gentles, Judith Joseph, Elaine Pelz, Leslie Pomerance, Beth Shadur, Jack Siegel, Leah Sosewitz, Jane Weintraub
