Rimon: The Minnesota Jewish Arts Council

Welcome to Rimon. We put artists in the center of the Jewish community – not on the margins.



Rimon, an initiative of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation, promotes and enhances Jewish identity through arts and culture, supports arts and artists who broadly explore Jewish themes, and assists the greater Jewish community in developing a collaborative involvement with the arts.

Summer Arts Workshops for Adults

Rimon and the Sabes JCC are teaming up for an inspirational and stimulating series of workshops that combine art and nature with a Jewish twist! Participants will work with renowned local artists in an array of artistic media at cultural sites throughout the Twin Cities.

July 15, 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.: The Spice of Life at Appetite for Change

July 22, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.: One with Nature at Minnesota Landscape Arboretum

July 29, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.: Mysteries of the Mississippi at Mill City Museum

This experience is for anyone who is looking for a unique summer experience and considers themselves to be an artist, arts appreciator or creative individual. Registration fee is $60 per class (receive a 10% discount for two or more sessions). For more information, visit www.sabesjcc.org/summer-arts-workshop.

Artist Salons

The Rimon Artist Salon series is funded in part by a gift in memory of David Tychman; a gift from Bruce Goodman; and is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

We’ve just wrapped up our 2014-2015 season of Artist Salons. Details for the 2015-2016 season will be published this summer.
