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 more than 24 exhibitions (see below).

For more information about our Art exhibitions or exhibiting your work, contact Marilee Tolwin or Wendy Klier

Holy Sparks – Celebrating Fifty Years of Women in the Rabbinate

The Braid partnered with Jean Bloch Rosensaft, Director of the Dr. Bernard Heller Museum at HUC to pair 24 cutting-edge, Jewish women artists each with a pioneering woman rabbi to create 24 original, stunning works of art — each one inspired by the individual rabbi’s personality, geography, and biography.
