The Jewish Museum
1109 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10128 - United States
The Jewish Museum is an art museum committed to illuminating the complexity and vibrancy of Jewish culture for a global audience. Located on New York City's Museum Mile, in the landmarked Warburg mansion, the Jewish Museum was the first institution of its kind in the United States and is one of the oldest Jewish museums in the world. The Museum offers diverse exhibitions and programs and maintains a unique collection of nearly 30,000 works of art, ceremonial objects, and media reflecting the global Jewish experience over more than 4,000 years.
Due to space limitations, the Jewish Museum requires advance timed entry. Please visit https://thejewishmuseum.org/buy/general-admission and select Saturday, September 17, 2022 to reserve your free timed ticket.
"New York: 1962-1964" uses the Jewish Museum’s influential role in the early 1960s New York art scene as a jumping-off point to examine how artists living and working in New York City responded to the events that marked this moment in time. Installed across two floors, this immersive exhibition presents more than 150 works of art—all made or seen in New York between 1962-1964—including painting, sculpture, photography, and film, alongside fashion, design, dance, poetry, and ephemera.
"Scenes from the Collection" features over 600 selections from the Jewish Museum's unique mix of artworks and ceremonial objects. The works are presented in thematic “scenes,” weaving together centuries of art and Judaica.
