MvVO Art Launches AD ART SHOW

Voices Speak Out This Week at the Museum of Jewish Heritage

Voices Speak Out This Week at the Museum of Jewish Heritage

Untold Stories of Jewish Women is a three day theatrical festival, March 20-22 at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in NYC. From the biblical legends of Sarah and Esther, to the “Iron Lady” of Israeli politics, Golda Meir, to the comedy of Joan Rivers and Sarah Silverman, the festival will explore the archetype of women who have contributed so meaningfully to the zeitgeist yet their stories have been told from only a few perspectives, and some have not been told at all, until now.

There are pieces about scientists, revolutionaries, survivors, and artists of all kinds.  These stories, both familiar and not, reveal a compelling cultural history which must be seen.

The cost is $25 for the entire festival/$10 per day.
