Exhibits at the Jewish Museum

The Jewish Museum in New York is dedicated to the enjoyment, understanding, and preservation of the artistic and cultural heritage of the Jewish people through its unparalleled collections, distinguished exhibitions, and related education programs.

In 2008, Genesis Philanthropy Group awarded a grant to the Jewish Museum in New York to organize programs for Russian-speaking audiences during the exhibition entitled Chagall and the Artists of the Russian Jewish Theater: 1919–1949.

In 2015, Genesis Philanthropy Group supports the exhibition Power of Pictures: Early Soviet Photography and Film that reveals the role Soviet Jewish artists, including Alexander Rodchenko, El Lissitsky and Boris Ignatovich, in the evolution of modern photography and film. This grant also funds the production of the exhibition guides in Russian language and additional programming planned specifically for Russian-speaking audiences, as well as funding for marketing efforts to this audience.

The programs includes:

  • The Family Day.
  • Wind Up evening Program for young professionals.
  • Author talk with David Shneer.

Financial support for the exhibits at the Jewish Museum is provided by Genesis Philanthropy Group, along with the Jewish Museum and other generous funders.
