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.
Cutting Out Injustice: Revolution in Jewish Papercuts
Sunday, February 24, 2 p.m. @ Traffic Zone Center for Visual Art, Minneapolis
Aaron Silver interprets contemporary life through papercuts that are rigorous, beautiful, and thought-provoking.
Drawing on Jewish texts, he energizes a traditional Jewish folk art that has often been viewed as simply decorative.
Freya Richman joins Aaron in conversation about the challenges of creating work that speaks to this moment in America.
Rimon has commissioned Aaron to create a new work which will be unveiled at the Salon.

Thank you to our audience who add so much rich content to the Artist Salon conversation.
On a frigid Sunday afternoon in January, at the sunny Light Grey Art Lab in Minneapolis, Eli Libson, video game designer, cartoonist, and illustrator and artist Marty Harris joined in conversation about the rich history of Jewish illustrators and the use of guile as part of the cultural outsider’s toolkit at High-Brow/Low-Brow: An Illustrator Looks Askance at Art.
Who gets to decide what is art?
The Trail Forward, a work-in-progress by composer and multi-instrumentalist Lisa Gutkin, tells the story of growing up with 85 lefty, Jewish, outdoor-loving, garment worker grandparents.
Rabbi Arielle Lekach-Rosenberg joined Lisa in conversation about making change through collective action and the power of music to ignite it.
