June will be exciting for Jewish arts on both coasts.
San Francisco’s Contemporary Jewish Museum opens June 8th. JTA’s Sue Fishkoff has already written about its unique mission, and here is an article from the San Francisco Chronicle about architect Daniel Liebeskind’s visit and thoughts on his latest architectural masterpiece.
Meanwhile, in New York City, many Jewish museums are hosting exhibits and concerts, from “Warhol’s Jews: Ten Portraits Reconsidered,” (at the Jewish Museum through Aug. 3) to “Spirit of Sepharad: From Casbah to Caliphate, a 500 Year Journey” at the Museum of Jewish Heritage on June 25. See the New York Times’ take on these and other New York Jewish arts events this summer
