Tapestry: Arts & Ideas
Welcome to the “second edition” of Tapestry. What an apt title Tapestry is for our arts series: an interwoven fusion of arts: music, theater, cinema, literature, art, and more. This semester we’re experimenting with three clusters of entwined programming which we hope will be thought provoking, beautiful, complex, and multi-faceted. Children of Nazis is a cluster of programs examining the legacy of the Third Reich among those children and young adults who were children of Nazis; Jews and the Civil War brings to the forefront our collaboration with the Milwaukee Rep and its production of The Whipping Man; and The Graphic Novel and its Jewish Roots examines the creation of Superman born from the American Jewish feeling of powerlessness during the rise of the Nazis. The focal point of this cluster is the brilliant production of The History of Invulnerability at the Milwaukee Rep. In addition, Pulitzer Prize winner Martin Fletcher will discuss his new novel, Jacob’s Oath. With additional art tours, exhibits, and hands-on art classes – Tapestry at the JCC is fast realizing our dreams to serve as a center for arts and ideas.
