Jewish Cultural Center Exhibits

The Jewish Cultural Center is committed to bringing the visual arts to the community. We put on 4-6 exhibits a year, showcasing regional, national, and international artists. From the serious to the seriously humorous, JCC exhibits truly have something for everyone.
