Beth Ames Swartz – Artists and Art Professionals Symposium
January 20, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pmFree
The Arizona Jewish Historical Society (AZJHS) presents Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World), an exhibition of acclaimed artist, Beth Ames Swartz. Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World) features works from several seminal series that span over 50 years, many from the artists own collection and selected by guest curator, Robert Pela. Each series underscores the philosophical, human and environmental concerns of the artist rather then a specific visual style. This exhibition will be displayed in the newly renovated Cutler-Plotkin Jewish Heritage Center, a historic former synagogue and church that now serves the community as a museum, cultural center, and event venue.
