Voices of Wisdom showcases new works created by Spertus Institute’s inaugural cohort of the Midwest Jewish Artists Lab. This year-long initiative brought together twelve distinguished local artists for workshops, study, and critiques. During the course of the program, each participant was charged with creating an artwork or series around the theme of wisdom.
The resulting work encompasses a remarkable array of media and approaches. Through technical skill and thoughtful engagement, the artists reinvent rituals, personalize liturgy, and capture the ever-changing face of Jewish life.
The artists selected to participate in the first Chicago cohort of the Midwest Jewish Artists Lab are:
Sylvia Alotta of Berwyn
Gabriella Boros of Skokie
Melanie Dankowicz of Champaign
Susan Dickman of Evanston
Berit Engen of Oak Park
Jonathan Franklin of Oak Park
Ellen Holtzblatt of Chicago
Judith Joseph of Northbrook
Stephen Levin of Riverwoods
Carol Neiger of Glenview
Dimitri Pavlotsky of Chicago
Amy Reichert of Evanston
The Midwest Jewish Artists Lab is generously supported by a grant from the Covenant Foundation.
