Museums | Jewish History: Centuries of Art


One of the largest collections of art and Jewish culture in the world, it focuses both on artifacts of Jewish history and on modern and contemporary art.

The exhibition speaks of the vast range of Jewish experiences across the globe and over time, made tangible through artistic expression. It is both a mirror of Jewish identities and an inspiration for the formation of new ones. Covid protocol applies.

Opening Reception | Hold On / ni4ni: 2 Exhibitions


LoVid  Hold On The show will present a series of digital tapestries and NFTs. Both are spatial and time-based compositions that translate interaction with human gesture into two fundamentally different formats.  Serkan Ozkaya ni4ni What if we told you that you don’t inhabit one single viewpoint, one body, one pair of eyes or one fleeting moment in time? What if you could escape the echo-chamber of your senses and infinitely multiply your perception, your experience, your very existence? Shift your perspective once and for all. The walls, ceiling and floors are streaked with illegible anamorphic patterns that the mirrored surface of a massive sphere in the corner reflects and reinterprets.

Classical Music | 1772: Diversion & Divergence: Mozart, Haydn


Program: Mozart's Divertimento in D Major Haydn's Quartet Op. 20 No. 1 in E-flat Major Richter's Quartet Op. 5 no. 5b in G minor With: Quartet Salonnieres Aniela Eddy, violin/viola Natalie Rose Kress, violin/viola Rebecca Nelson, violin/viola Cullen O'Neil, cello What was en vogue in 1772 Europe? Hoop skirts of unspeakable proportions, elaborate hairstyles that sometimes depicted current events, three-cornered hats, Revolutionary ideas... and in music -- a form that had recently won over Austria and was now sweeping through the rest of Europe: the string quartet. The string quartet was born in large part from the Austrian tradition of the divertimento, a genre that encompassed a variety of instrumentations but excluded continuo. Divertimenti were generally lighthearted and harmonically straightforward, and could be performed either as orchestra or chamber music depending simply on the number of instrumentalists involved. In the mid 1700's, chamber performances of four-part divertimenti constituted the very first public appearances of what would soon become known as the string quartet. This 1772 program highlights an extraordinary year in string quartet history, when the form still had strong ties to the divertimento but was also blossoming into its own deeply complex and wildly popular genre.
