Milwaukee Jewish Artists Laboratory Preview
Wednesday, May 6, 2015, 7:00 PM

The Milwaukee Jewish Artists' Lab, a project of the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center, brings together nearly two dozen area artists from across mediums and experiences, to discuss, create and elevate Jewish art and offer invigorating forms of Jewish engagement, which culminates in a thematic exhibit displayed at the JCC. Now in its fourth year, the theme for 2014-2015, is Water.

In anticipation of the exhibit opening the first week of June, several of the LAB artists will participate in a preview panel discussion. Program attendees will hear from Helene Fischman, Berel Lutsky, Barbara Kohl-Spiro, and Marc Tasman about their individual creative approaches, the overall project, and get a special sneak peak of works in the exhibit including a 'Flash Flood' mini play performance by Jody Hirsh.
