Exhibitions

  • Culture Shock : Photography by John Gutmann

    Culture Shock focuses on an early period of creative flowering for the Jewish photographer, a German refugee who arrived in the U.S. during the Great Depression. Continuing through January 2, 2022, the exhibition showcases over 60 vivid images of American popular culture that Gutmann captured as only an outsider could.

  • History With Chutzpah : Remarkable Stories of the SouthernJewish Adventure

    The 250+ artifacts, documents, photographs and oral histories in the exhibition, reveal stories from the generations before us and offer you a journey into Jewish culture unlike any other. Enhanced by personal interviews, oral history excerpts and interactive screen displays. Jewish Southerners adapted to, adopted or affected the society that surrounded them, while simultaneously retaining and celebrating their unique cultural heritage. Some had bold ideas that led to innovation and change, and some held values that impelled them to rebel against ‘the way things were,’ and others accepted the culture and customs of the South.
