Event Details

Jewish Artists of the early twentieth century entered Palestine with a utopian dream of healing and transformation. Great landscapes and colorful portraits reflected a yearning for connection to place. Cultural battles between the Old City of Jerusalem and the newly founded Tel Aviv led to inspiring visions of what Judaism had been and could become with the advent of a Jewish State. The beautiful innovative artworks of Boris Schatz, Reuven Rubin, Anna Ticho, and other Jewish artists surprise contemporary American audiences with their strength and courageous message of hope. Art historian and educator John Paul Thornton gives insight and shines a light on the history of these creators in a special, single-evening presentation.
