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.
Artists Salon Series
A Life in Transit: Immigration Through an Artist’s Lens
Sunday, March 18, 2018, 2 P.M.
Sabes JCC, 4330 S. Cedar Lake Road, Minneapolis
Cost: $12 ($6: ages 36 and under)
The plight of immigrants and the challenges they face is one of the defining stories of our times. Writer/painter Susan Weinberg and photographer Steve Ozone have created bodies of work that frame the connections between immigrants and their environments. This Salon, moderated by photographer Linda Brooks, uncovers how artists can provoke unexpected insights into questions of identity.
Mark your calendar for the next Artist Salon:
Sunday, April 29, 2 p.m., Traffic Zone Center for Visual Art, Minneapolis. Multimedia artist Jonatas Chimen Dias DaSilva-Benayon comes from a crypto-Jewish background and has created an uncanny visual and performance vocabulary to explore the hybrid reality of his family’s past. Michal Sagar joins him in conversation.
Minnesota Jewish teens in grades 7-12 are invited to submit original poetry, creative prose, photography, and video to Keren Or (Ray of Light), a creative arts contest for Jewish youth. The deadline for submissions is February 16 (5 p.m.).
Submit your work HERE.
