The “Artists’ Lab” is a project of The J, The Harry & Rose Samson Jewish Community Center in Milwaukee, The University of Wisconsin Hillel in Madison, The Sabes JCC in Minneapolis, and The Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership in Chicago. Together, we are engaging more than 70 professional artists to nurture Jewish knowledge, meaning and fellowship.
Our work will be framed by the year-long exploration of a theme chosen by artists from all five cities, entitled Echoes: Voices of Wisdom.
Artists (“Fellows”) in each city are meeting once or twice monthly over the course of the year to explore, react to, share and internalize the meaning of Jewish sources related to the annual theme. While each city will operate independently, we will become more than the sum of our parts through regular communication. This process began with a five city retreat in Milwaukee this fall, during which we studied with national educators, celebrated Shabbat, and shared ideas.
In Kansas City, we invite you to join us in exploring the theme by participating in related programming and artist-led community workshops.
The 2015-2016 program will culminate in an exhibit/showcase featuring works by the artists and an engaging exhibition by and about community workshop participants.
