Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles Exhibit on Jewish Homegrown History

Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

The Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, CA (USA) opened an exhibit on "Jewish Homegrown History: Immigration, Identity and Intermarriage," that will run through September 2, 2012. "Jewish Homegrown History" explores how home movies can illuminate the story of California Jewry - a community tied closer than most to the project of film. This exhibit is the brainchild of The Labyrinth Project, a hybrid art collective and digital research group based at the University of Southern California. In addition to the movies there is an interactive computer station where visitors can explore a companion website:

 If you are planning a visit to Southern California in this time period you may wish to consider viewing the exhibit.  http://tinyurl.com/879bube
