More Than Just Stories On the Stage

The Braid uniquely curates art exhibits that tie thematically with performances or events presented by The Braid. Patrons experience a theme visually and dramatically. This artful and innovative aspect of our work deepens engagement with a topic, setting it apart from other theatres and performance spaces.

We feature new, emerging and established artists using various mediums. They share their works in our exhibits as well as participate in art talk events to illuminate the human condition, often through a Jewish lens. We have curated over 24 shows.
