Two large exhibits that had just opened at the Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life at UC Berkeley when the coronavirus pandemic began can now be viewed online. “In Real Times. Arthur Szyk: Art & Human Rights,” a collection of paintings and drawings by the renowned 20th-century Polish artist, and “An Archive of Archives, Roman Vishniac’s Exhibition History, New York 1971-72,” a re-creation of a non-Magnes Vishniac exhibit, are in digital form on the Magnes website, along with other artifacts from the collections, videos of past events and more.
