Splitting the Light: Welcoming Nature Back to Our Lives
Featuring work by Lilli Sprintz
Over the course of her life, Lilli has lived in many different environments exposing her to the vastness of nature that would inevitably inspire her work and love of nature. From the landscapes of Philadelphia to the red cardinals of Cincinnati and most recently to the lakes and blue skies of Minnesota – which is considered home for Sprintz.
The Hebrew letters in Lilli’s work are used as symbols, which communicate messages; some are prayers but all of this is about how much Sprintz loves nature and wants to protect it.

Judaism, Art & Science Interwoven
Featuring 36 new works by six participants in the Partnership2Gether Artist Exchange Program with Israel.
Partnership2Gether (P2G) is a collaboration between the community of Minneapolis and Rehovot, Israel where new relationships are formed by connecting through different platforms. This artist exchange engages artists from both communities as they work together throughout the year creating art work and participating in discussions on Israel, Jewish Identity and Peoplehood through their own art creations and Jewish texts. The theme, Judaism, Art & Science Interwoven, was chosen to reflect the shared focus and integration of science within each city. The approach is Re-Art where each artist modifies another’s work, adapting and reinterpreting each of the pieces, creating a new work of art.
Artists include: Linda Passon-McNally, David Sherman, Cathy Tobias, Pazit Assouline, Anatt Friedman, and Roni Schechber, as well as select 2018–19 P2G alumnis.
A partnership between The Israel Center of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation, The Jewish Agency, Municipality of Rehovot, Rimon: The Minnesota Jewish Arts Council and Sabes JCC.
