2011 CAJM Conference in Philadelphia

Cynthia Beth Rubin, the lead artist organizer of the artist team that developed the Cultural Heritage Artists Project, will be presenting the project at the 2011 Council of American Jewish Museums in Philadelphia in late February.

The Cultural Heritage Artists Project of the Orchard Street Shul is pleased to participate in this important event. Our Stories, Our Museums: New Chapters for Jewish Culture, will explore a theme that evokes the primacy of narrative in museums. The particular story conveyed by the dazzling new NMAJH is that of the Jewish experience in America, a story illuminated by CAJM's other institutions, as well as a story with universal implications for the shared American experience, revealing the promise and challenges of liberty. The conference theme also looks at the future, addressing emerging trends.
