Skirball Museum Tour

For WiseGen and Empty Nesters

Join Skirball Museum director Abby Schwartz for a virtual tour of the exhibition Archie Rand: Sixty Paintings from the Bible. This internationally celebrated artist and Jewish scholar brings a unique blend of expressionistic comic book style and loosely painted imagery rendered in vivid tones to familiar stories from the Hebrew Bible. Visually stunning and thoughtful, the works by this living artist are at the same time irreverent and serious, adding fresh perspectives to narratives that have shaped Western civilization.

RSVP by 11/3

The Cincinnati Skirball Museum, founded in 1913 as the Union Museum with the assistance of the National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods, was the first formally established Jewish museum in the United States. Its core exhibition, An Eternal People: The Jewish Experience, as well as temporary exhibitions, portray the cultural, historical, and religious heritage of the Jewish people. In 2015, B’nai B’rith International and HUC-JIR announces the transfer of the art and artifacts of the former B’nai B’rith Klutznick National Jewish Museum, for the purposes of preserving and displaying this distinctive collection of sacred and secular fine and decorative arts. The B’nai B’rith Klutznick Collection augments and enhances the Skirball’s holdings significantly, rendering it among the most prominent Jewish museums between the Alleghenies and the Rockies.
