"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.
