Explore Jewish identity in the works of Yona Verwer and Cynthia Beth Rubin

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS

COLORADO---New York artists Cynthia Beth Rubin and Yona Verwer exhibit a varied series of Jewish-themed works this summer at the Mizel Museum. The works created together and separately, demonstrate how very different paths led each artist to an exploration of Jewish history and heritage. Working together as interpreters of history and heritage, the two photographed, documented, represented, and wove together stories of the past and the present. The resulting collaborative works are presented as canvas banners, incorporating painterly digital imagery and physical acrylic paint. The Mizel Museum enables all people to appreciate Jewish culture and explore Jewish life in Colorado.
