On concurrent display in the Sabes JCC’s Shared Walls Exhibition Areas will be works by Piven. The exhibit — planned in conjunction with the 2015 Twin Cities Jewish Humor Festival and the Culture Blvd. series — includes Piven’s colorful mixed media and witty celebrity caricatures assembled from common objects and scraps of materials.
Piven will lead a workshop for all ages and offer a lecture on Sunday, Jan. 18 at the JCC. The AJW spoke with Piven this week; a feature story will appear in the Jan. 2 edition.
Since 1912 the AJW has served as an important news resource for the Jewish community. The Jewish World unites the main Jewish communities in St. Paul and Minneapolis, as well as those in Duluth, Rochester and smaller cities, and bridges the divides between the various Jewish religious streams.
