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 Tasty Sampling of Rimon-Supported Artists
Monday, June 5, 6 p.m.
5418 Wayzata Blvd, Minneapolis (55416)
Cost: $54 per person
Rimon invites you to support its sixth annual P’Chotchka, a fast-paced evening of art, film, and performance. This event is a benefit for Rimon and it features eight outstanding artists whose work has been highlighted by Rimon over the past five years. During P’Chotchka the artists speak about ideas and experiences that inspired their artistic work. Eighteen images of each artist’s choosing are projected on a screen, and the artists talk about each image for 18 seconds. The result is a lively, stimulating smorgasbord of ideas.
