Archie Rand at City Winery: The New Shul's Rebbe's Table

Sunday, March 17th, 9:45 am - The New Shul's Rebbe's Table 
At the City Winery's Klezmer Brunch.

Archie Rand: Jewish Iconoclast 

Painter, muralist and Jewish iconoclast Archie Rand will be in conversation with The New Shul's Rabbi Dan Ain about art, religion and defying the establishment. From his murals at "The Painted Shul" which cover the interior at Congregation B'nai Yosef in Brooklyn, to his recent work, "The 613" which includes individual panels and depictions for all 613 commandments, Rand has been creating radical Jewish art for almost thirty years, 

"challenging both the contemporary art establishment and the purveyors of Jewish culture."

"As a consequence of this insolence he has been exiled to what amounts to a critical wilderness. It is time to redeem him from exile, time for the Jewish public to take note and acknowledge the accomplishments of the foremost creator of Jewish art working today. Our cultural future depends on it." - Richard McBee, The Jewish Week.
