Tikkun Olam - Repairing the World

A Collaborative Presentation by 4 local artists of the ways in which art and artists can help to heal our world

An exhibition of beautiful and thoughtful contemporary art that raises the awareness of important concerns facing us today, including human trafficking, abused women, abandoned children, animal rights, disappearing species and fauna, recycling, composting. The art in this exhibit calls upon us to repair the world of its imperfections and not stand idly by when another human being is endangered or an issue of concern requires our intervention.

“Repairing the world through art is different than a sociologist explaining cultural phenomena, a politician alerting society to perspective on alternative solutions, or a community leader clarifying areas of concern. The artwork brings sensitivity on the matter from the heart of the artist. The statement is integral to the work, but not overt. The beauty stands out, but the message shines through.”
- Artist Carolyn Lavender

The Cutler-Plotkin Jewish Heritage Center, where the exhibit will be held, was built in 1921. This historic Phoenix landmark served as Phoenix, Arizona's first synagogue and later became a Chinese-speaking and then Spanish-speaking Baptist church. Purchased by the Arizona Jewish Historical Society in 2002 and restored in 2008-2010, the center now serves as a museum and event venue open to people of all faiths. Exhibitions and programs educate the public about Jewish heritage as well as the diverse history of Arizona. The center is a Phoenix Point of Pride and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
