The Puzzle Project: Israel Celebration at the Jewish Museum of Maryland
May 17, 2015
Students attending local Jewish day school and after school programs are participating in a creative art project that will be on display at the Jewish Museum of Maryland on Sunday, May 17, 2015.
The Puzzle Project, inspired and created by New York artist, Tim Kelly, allows art to be easily accessible to anyone that wants to create personally meaningful artwork. Students participating in the program are expressing themselves individually and collectively on their shared vision on what Israel means to them on blank white, 18’’by 18” puzzle pieces.
According to Kelly, the goal of the project is to give each participating artist the confidence to believe in their own ideas and to help make the ideas come to life on a puzzle piece. “In the beginning each of the pieces is the same, but by the end, every single one of the thousands of pieces in the big jigsaw installation is different… just like all of us. The unique message created on so many puzzle pieces both fascinates and inspires me to keep the project going and growing.”
This program is a collaboration between the Jewish Museum of Maryland, the Center for Jewish Education and the Embassy of Israel.
