EXHIBITION: RECYCLED/REPURPOSED/REPAIR THE WORLD: Art as Tikkun Olam
DATES: March 30 – June 30, 2019

A desk calendar that is now an Omer calendar; a cigarette box that is now an Etrog box. These recycled treasures from the museum’s permanent collection serve as inspiration as 22 artists recycle and repurpose objects from the ridiculous to the sublime, demonstrating their creativity, concern for our environment and the concept of Tikkun Olam (Repair the World).
