What Makes Jewish Art Jewish?
Hosted By: Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning
Jewish art as a distinct category of art has been discussed, embraced, and even denied by Jewish artists and art scholars for the last century. What are the features that define “Jewish art”? Is it Jewish if the artist is Jewish? Can it be considered Jewish if the subject matter is Jewish but not the artist? And if a Jewish artist creates something about secular or even non-Jewish religious ideas, is it still “Jewish art”? Join scholar Dr. Linda Sandhaus, as we get to the root of these questions and their implications. Viewing selected artworks to explore this issue, participants will reflect upon the relevance of Jewish art today and its role in preserving a lasting Jewish tomorrow.
