Artifact Talk: Rescue and Renewal
Grace Cohen Grossman, Curator Emerita, Skirball Museum, Los Angeles, details the history of the JCR & its task at the end of World War II to identify looted, "heirless" Jewish ceremonial objects and books, and to reclaim them for the Jewish people. Over sixty objects were placed in the care of the HTC. On loan to the Museum, these treasured artifacts will now be on display in the Feis Family Lobby. Reservations required; firstname.lastname@example.org. Museum admission.
Now celebrating its 34th year, Fountain Square Art Festival is the largest and oldest fine arts fair on Chicago's majestic North Shore. Featuring the eclectic works of more than 225 juried artists, this sprawling art showcase epitomizes words like "cosmopolitan” and "sophistication." The festival takes place in downtown Evanston, just steps from the eponymous Fountain Square. It also features a popular children's art tent with fun activities overseen by the acclaimed Evanston Art Center, food, and a soothing jazz-centric music lineup.
Michael Londra’s Celtic Fire
Famed Irish tenor, Michael Londra took a tiny spark and created a blazing hot show with his new production, Celtic Fire. With 100% live music, dance and song paying due respect to Irish culture and history, the show generates an electric atmosphere that sweeps audiences away to Ireland, its culture, its pubs, its music and its heart. The music in Celtic Fire is traditional at its core and performed by a talented band of Irish musicians on traditional instruments: Added to guitar and keys, the Irish fiddle drives the frenetic reels, the bodhran beats out the driving rhythms, and the plaintive uileann pipes call back to days of yore with beautiful and haunting slow airs.
