DESCRIPTION

Since its founding in 1984, the Contemporary Jewish Museum has engaged audiences of all ages and backgrounds through dynamic exhibitions and programs that explore contemporary perspectives on Jewish culture, history, art, and ideas. The Museum has distinguished itself as a welcoming place where visitors can connect with one another through dialogue and shared experiences with the arts.

Embracing a range of artistic disciplines and media, the Museum’s exhibition program includes contemporary art and historical objects, film and music, conversations, lectures, literary readings, and other live performance. Ever changing, the Contemporary Jewish Museum is a non-collecting institution that partners with national and international cultural institutions to present exhibitions that are both timely and relevant and represent the highest level of artistic achievement and scholarship. The focus of the CJM's programming is on education and outreach to the broader community with the goal of fostering interfaith and intercultural dialogues.

The Museum's Daniel Libeskind-designed facility enables and inspires its mission. Dynamic and welcoming, it's a place to experience art, music, film, literature, debate, and—most importantly—people.
