Crossing The Threshold
Featuring work by the Jewish Artists’ Laboratory
The Jewish Artists’ Laboratory, now in its sixth year, explores specific themes through study and art making, bringing together a diverse group of artists who have an interest in the relationship between Jewish thought and creativity.
This year, nearly 35 artists spent eight months studying and exploring the theme of Crossing the Threshold. This topic presented a multitude of opportunities to explore how thresholds are reflected in Jewish rituals and holidays, and the significance of Jewish rituals and holidays, and the significance of thresholds in its many forms. This exhibit showcases a large array of media and subject matter around this expansive theme.
