ABOUT THE EXHIBITION | Rooted explores the dual role of art embedded in the environment and in Jewish identity. Co-sponsored by the Jewish Art Salon and Manny Cantor Center, Rooted highlights the complex and deeply rooted relationships featured artists have to the changing natural environment and to Jewish culture. This group exhibition invites art enthusiasts, environmental activists, and the wider community to experience the artwork in the galleries and contemplate their own roots.
Providing in-depth Jewish learning, community engagement, and artist studio experience, Art Kibbutz’s residency programs helped participating artists deepen their own complex relationship to the environment and their Jewish heritage.
