The Teitelbaum Family Center for the Arts presents rotating exhibitions that explore Jewish culture, values and our community at large by showcasing a wide variety of mediums. All exhibits are free of charge and open to the public.
All of the 2015-16 Art Exhibitions are made possible, in part, by a gift from Cookie Addison & Family.
All Cultural Arts programs at the APJCC are made possible, in part, by generous contributions from Sylvia & Leonard Metz, Doris & Rick Davis, and Bill Lister.
The APJCC is proud to be a part of the Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood, co-funded by the Koret Foundation and the Taube Foundation for Jewish Life & Culture.

Focus on Wonder: Photographs from the APJCC Preschool
January 19th - March 11th
We have some incredible photos from our preschool. They represent a significant point of connection for our community and speak to the important role of education and growth in our JCC. The photographs were taken by preschool teachers and offer a deep experience and personal insight for the viewer.
The focus of the exhibit is to showcase children's learning through exploration. They show children engaged in activities that strengthen their sense of wonder and reinforce control over their learning. Each photo is a work of art on its own, but is also a part of the narrative of children's learning.
Laurie Wohl’s Birds of Longing: Exile and Memory
March 14th - May 2nd
This project interweaves Muslim, Jewish, and Christian poetry and spiritual texts from the period of convivencia (co-existence) in Spain (8th-15th centuries), and from modern Middle Eastern poets, particularly Palestinian and Israeli.
Emphasis is on the common themes and striking parallels between Arabic and Hebrew texts, similarly rich in their poetry of spiritual love, an extensive poetry of exile, and poetry of nostalgia for Andalusia.
The project contains Wohl’s weavings, as well as an audio component which consists of readings in English, Arabic, and Hebrew that are interwoven to create a soundscape illustrating the commonality of the Middle Eastern languages.
Wohl will be at the JCC on March 31st as part of an interfaith panel discussion.
