Museum Matters: August 2019

Posted on August 2nd, 2019 by

Last Six Weeks

First, the good news – in negotiations with the Jewish Museum Milwaukee we’ve been able to extend the tour of Stitching History from the Holocaust until September 15. It will now close the same day as Fashion Statement.

And now the other news – six weeks will fly by before you know it. Don’t procrastinate. As added incentive for your visit, we’ve saved some of our best related programs – including virtual tours of the Anne Frank House as well as lectures by Dr. Vanessa Ochs and Jenna Joselit for these final weeks of the exhibit (see details below).

Museum Matters: June 2019

Posted on June 7th, 2019 by

We Get the Job Done!

This month we celebrate the contribution of immigrants from around the globe to the American story. We kick things off on June 20, by welcoming the latest group of Americans as they take their oaths of citizenship at the JMM.

The following Sunday, Hamiltunes will help us sing the praises of Alexander Hamilton, who fans of the Broadway show will know was a Jewish-educated, Caribbean immigrant. Hamiltunes, where we the people have a chance to rap the iconic musical, is the centerpiece of this year’s Jonestown Festival. This year the festival is being held at the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House, just a short walk from JMM. It’s a great way to share your pride in America’s immigrant roots with your whole family.

We finish the month with stories of refugees – both those of the Holocaust period, and those who are coming to America today.

Don’t throw away your shot. Come join us in June.

Museum Matters: May 2019

Posted on May 3rd, 2019 by

Where It’s Always May

Thirteen years ago, Congress and the President established May as National Jewish Heritage Month. The concept paralleled the established months to honor African-American, Hispanic American and other cultures in our diverse national quilt. This month we will indeed feature several programs addressing the Jewish immigrant experience and the intersection between the Holocaust and American life.

But, of course, the same can be said for June, July, and August. Jews have lived in North America for more than 350 years – way too much story to cover in just 31 days. So next winter when it is 5 below zero in February, just say “I’m going to the JMM, because there it’s always May!”
