Exhibits are presented in two locations: The Isaacs Gallery, which is located on your right just past the Osher Marin JCC front desk, and the Kurland Lounge, which is the room on the far left when you enter from the Lobby. Both areas are open during regular Marin JCC hours.
The Shabbat Project: An Exhibit by Artist Laurie Wohl
The Osher Marin JCC is pleased to present The Shabbat Project, a new exhibition of textile art by Laurie Wohl that visually interprets the wonder and sanctity of Shabbat. The great 20th century rabbi and thinker Abraham Joshua Heschel famously likened Shabbat to a sanctuary in time, describing it as “the Jewish equivalent to sacred architecture.” The exhibit is accompanied by a soundscape (on iPods), so the viewer can be transported by the melodies – both ancient and contemporary – that illuminate these prayers.
Meet the artist at the opening reception on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 from 7-9pm and hear her speak on this powerful project. The exhibit runs through January 3rd.
