An exhibition of the work of 14 contemporary artists interpreting traditional Jewish folktales and characters in new, commissioned works including sculpture, installation art, painting, video, and photography.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Jewish Folktales Retold: Artist as Maggid :

This exhibition presents contemporary interpretations of Jewish folklore through a series of new commissions by artists, acting as “maggids,” or modern day storytellers, and includes new works by Michael Arcega, Julia Goodman, Mads Lynnerup, Tracey Snelling, Chris Sollars and Inez Storer, among many others.
