Come see three new exhibits: “Seek My Face: The Art of Joshua Meyer 2000-2016”; “Wings” by Harriet Zeitlin; and “The German Roots of Zionism,” an educational exhibition. Meyer is known for his thickly layered paintings of people. He is a recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant as well as the Sustainable Arts Foundation Award. Additionally, he attained a painting fellowship from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Zeitlin has had 25 solo shows and has participated in 100 group shows. She is the recipient of a California Arts Council Grant and City of Los Angeles Cultural Grant. The third exhibit was organized by the Leo Baeck Institute (and made possible by the German Information Center USA). It explores the dream of refuge from anti-Semitism and the popular 19th-century dream of having a place for Jewish religion and culture to flourish. Some of the most enduring expressions of the Zionist vision emanated from assimilated Jews in cities such as Vienna and Berlin, where Jews enjoyed unprecedented rights and prosperity. 7 p.m. Free.
