11 am – 4:30 pm
December 25 is a great day to visit the Jewish Museum. With four floors of exhibitions to view, and two concerts and a Drop-In Art Workshop for families with children, there is something for everyone. Even the Cooper Shop will be open with special values for our December 25 visitors.
Exhibition highlights include Helena Rubinstein: Beauty Is Power, which The Wall Street Journal called "…a stunning profile of a collector and cosmetics mogul...A tour de force," and From the Margins: Lee Krasner and Norman Lewis, 1945 – 1952. The New York Times raved that From the Margins is "...a nuanced, sensitive and profound exhibition… a subtler, more intimate dialect of Abstract Expressionism.” See everything on view.
At 11:30 am or 2 pm, join Oran Etkin’s Timbalooloo, a world party for families. From the music of Africa to klezmer and jazz, Etkin’s performances weave global melodies and rhythms into a gumbo of goodness. Plus art-making and more. (Tickets include Museum admission)
And families with children ages 3 and up can drop by our art studio on Floor 4 to create a playful abstract work of art using stamp-making and painting techniques inspired by the dazzling canvases of painters Lee Krasner and Norman Lewis. (12:30 – 4 pm. Free with Museum Admission).
