Meet Our 2021 Visiting Artists

After the success of our Arts Tracks pilot program last summer, we are excited to again be inviting a group of Visiting Artists to join the 2021 Fellows for 2 weeks of workshops and performance this summer at Isabella Freedman.

In addition to guiding the Fellows on a journey of self-discovery and artistic creation, the Visiting Artists will also have the opportunity to work on their own independent projects and contribute to the world of North American Jewish art. This innovative group of contemporary Jewish artists (see bios below) will join our esteemed faculty of Rabbis and educators
