Artist-in-Residence Siona Benjamin

MAY 17, 18 & 20 – Siona Benjamin is a painter originally from Bombay. Her work reflects her background of being raised Jewish in Hindu and Muslim cultures. Her paintings combine the imagery of her past with the role she plays in America today, blending ancient forms with contemporary pop cultural elements, creating a vocabulary of her own. Join us for three special events with this renowned artist: Salon Night on May 17, The Art of Shabbat on May 18 and a Creative Sundays Workshop delving into miniature painting in the colorful Persian/Indian tradition.

Events co-sponsored by the Young Adult Department of the Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado and Denver Sister Cities International Karmiel Committee.
