  • 4. Our Mission
    The Ann Loeb Bronfman Gallery offers exhibitions and programs that enhance Jewish identity, examine issues of social importance and develop community. Through exhibitions, the gallery seeks to present authentic artwork and artifacts that address themes of social consciousness and cultural awareness. Multi-disciplinary programs are created to reflect public experience and expand the reach of each exhibition to a variety of age and cultural groups.
  • 5. The Gallery As A Classroom:Internal Agency Collaboration
    During the exhibition Memory of a time I did not know…, the gallery worked with the JCC’s preschool to put together an exhibition.
    Preschoolers made multiple visits to the gallery in order to spend time with the work.
    Based on the different mediums that the artist had used, the preschoolers made their own artwork that reflected on the work in the gallery.

    December 20, 2010: In response to the removal of the David Wojnarowicz piece Fire In My Belly, we held a community “Rapid Response” panel discussion to discuss what led up to its removal.
    Working with Transformer Gallery, The National Portrait Gallery and activist Catherine V. Dawson, we reached a wide range of people.
    Between 230 and 260 people attended.

    Through a collaboration with the Bronfman Gallery, the DCJCC’s GLOE (Kurlander Program for GLBT Outreach & Engagement) and the National Portrait Gallery, we put together a private tour of the exhibition Hide/Seek with curator David C. Ward.
    More 60+ people showed up for the tour which lasted close to two hours.

  • 17. Conclusion
    Collaborations between galleries/museums can:
    Provide new and interesting ways of using art to educate a greater public
    Give emerging artists more opportunities to showcase their work.
    Expand the idea of an “arts” community.
