The Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art is hosting an exhibit March 3-June 24, 2016 titled “Jews Rock!” featuring photographs of Jewish Icons in music through the lens of photojournalist Janet Macoska including Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen and many more. In addition, the Museum will showcase a select group of Oklahoma artists with original pieces of artwork featuring Jewish rock artists. The Museum has provided ten artists with an unfinished guitar body and assigned them a Jewish musician to paint but the design is completely up to them. Their work will be displayed in our museum for the entire exhibit. The opening reception is March 3, from 5-7 p.m.
