New Works by Fellows of the Midwest Jewish Artists Lab

Outside Inside: Exploring Boundaries and Otherness displays new works created by Spertus Institute's second cohort of the Midwest Jewish Artists Lab. This yearlong initiative brought together twelve distinguished local artists for workshops, study, and critiques. During the course of the program, each participant created an artwork or series around the theme of boundaries.

The artists selected to participate in the second Chicago cohort of the Midwest Jewish Artists Lab are:

Stewart Cherlin Alan Hobscheid
Julie Cowan  Suzanne Horwitz
Dorit Jordan Dotan Sandra Perlow
Gabrielle Egnater Joyce Polance
Peter N. Gray Charles Rice
Charlotte Hart Pauline L. Silberman


The Midwest Jewish Artists Lab is generously supported by a grant from the Covenant Foundation.

Exhibitions at Spertus Institute are made possible in part through the generous support of the Harry and Sadie Lasky and Charles & M.R. Shapiro Foundations.
