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.

P’Chotchka* a Fast-Paced Evening of Art, Food & Ideas

*P’Chotchka is inspired by the Japanese pecha kucha presentation style. The format, which keeps presentations concise, powers 8 Rimon-supported artists who talk briskly about 18 images apiece that inspire them – with 18 seconds per image.
