The Jewish Museum in New York is hosting a new art exhibit on ritual in Jewish life, it was announced this week. "Reinventing Ritual: Contemporary Art and Design for Jewish Life," which opens September 13, will feature nearly 60 works by leading artists from between 1999 and 2009. Various media, including architecture, video, drawing, metalwork, jewelry, ceramics, comics and sculpture are used to show the "intersections of creative freedom and Jewish life," according to a Tuesday press release. Most of the 56 artists are American and Israeli, with a smaller number of Europeans and South Americans. The exhibit runs through February 7, 2010.
