Hanukkah Art Mix


Sunday, December 18, 2022
11 am – 3:30 pm EST
Scheuer Auditorium & Exhibition Galleries

Celebrate the beginning of Hanukkah ​with art-making and ​an exploration of striking Hanukkah menorahs in the ​Jewish Museum’s galleries. Capture your discoveries through playful drawing activities, collaborate on an “illuminated city” installation with The Giant Room (a creative hub for children), participate in a projected light and shadow activity with Imagination Play Project, print unique Hanukkah cards, and re-mix everyday materials to design a holiday sculpture inspired by art on view in New York: 1962-1964.

The Giant Room will be leading their drop-in installation project from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm.
Linda White, play curator and founder of Imagination Play Project will be leading an interactive and open-ended play session from 11:30 am - 2 pm. Experiment with light and shadow using translucent materials and Hanukkah silhouettes, project your creations on a wall, and get inspired by the bold images of artists on view in New York: 1962-1964 using found objects and more. 
All other activities are ongoing.
