Archie Rand, whose career as an artist spans five decades, will discuss “The 613,” his five-year project to transform all 613 mitzvot [commandments] into individual paintings. He will share projected images of the panels and reflect on his process. Rand works as a painter and muralist and made his foray into Jewish subjects in the 1970s when he made a series of now-famous murals in the B’nai Yosef Synagogue in Brooklyn, NY. SInce then, he has created many synagogue murals, a series of 19 section of the daily Amidah prayer and 54 paintings on the divisions of the Torah. His collections have been shown in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Shirah Rubin, artist, art educator and Jewish arts consultant, will be facilitating the conversation.
