New Beginnings: The Skirball Collection and Inaugural Exhibition
The Skirball Museum houses one of the most significant Judaica art collections in the world. In this volume, curatorial and academic scholars come together to discuss the museum's origins and its collections, which encompass 4000 years of Jewish historical experience.
Color illustrations showing objects from each of the museum's collection categories are accompanied by essays explaining the significance of the art. The two final chapters document the museum's inaugural exhibition, "Visions and Values: Jewish Life from Antiquity to America", and the ancient Near Eastern history and archaeology exhibits of the Discovery Center. An essential souvenir for Skirball visitors.
