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.

Sculpting Light: The Art of Glass

Rimon Salon: Sculpting Light 2015
Sunday, November 22, 2 p.m.
FOCI Minnesota Center for Glass Arts
Admission is $12 ($6 for ages 30 and under)
*Interpretation is available upon request with 10 days advance notice

Join rising glass artist David Royce and salon moderator, Jennifer Komar Olivarez, for Rimon’s first Artist Salon of its 2015-16 series, as they explore the subject of glassmaking – including a live demonstration of glassblowing.

To reserve your seat, please contact the Rimon office at 952-381-3449 or rimon@sabesjcc.org.

David Royce’s work stretches from one-of-a-kind sculptural work, using both hot and cold glass as well as cast bronze and steel armatures, to hand-blown production to cold-worked vessels and lighting fixtures. David owns and operates his own studio in St. Paul, Minn.; in addition, his work can be found in galleries across the U.S.

Jennifer Komar Olivarez is the curator of Decorative Arts and Design at the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia), where she oversees the museum’s Prairie School-style Purcell-Cutts House as well as its collection of design, architecture, and contemporary craft. She is the author of Progressive Design in the Midwest: The Purcell-Cutts House and the Prairie School Collection at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.

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.
