My 2022 Trip to the Jewish Museum


I have documented several visits to the Jewish Museum on 5th Avenue and 92nd Street in this journal.  My last visit was in May 2021.  An exhibit titled New York 1962-1964 attracted me to the museum today.  This exhibit explores a pivotal three-year period in the history of art and culture in New York City, examining how artists living and working in New York responded to their rapidly changing world, through more than 150 works of art—all made or seen in New York during this time frame.  This exhibit populates the first and second floors of the museum.

Scenes from the Collection is a rotating collection exhibition featuring nearly 600 works from antiquities to contemporary art—many of which are on view for the first time.  I enjoyed watching a video of clips from TV shows featuring Jewish weddings.

Below are two works from the New York 1962-1964 exhibit

There was a working jukebox that played 45 rpm hits of that era
