The Jewish Museum

The Jewish Museum, founded in 1904, is the preeminent museum of art and Jewish culture in the United States. The Jewish Museum is located on New York City’s Museum Mile within blocks of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. The Museum’s collections comprise 27,000 items ranging from archaeological artifacts to works by today’s cutting-edge artists. Current exhibitions include The Snowy Day and the Art of Ezra Jack Keats, Jem Cohen: New York City Weights and Measures, and The Radical Camera: New York’s Photo League, 1936-1951.

Upcoming exhibitions scheduled for summer 2012 include Kehinde Wiley/The World Stage: Israel, and Edouard Vuillard: A Painter and His Muses, 1890-1940.
