The Mizel Museum’s permanent exhibit, 4,000 Year Road Trip: Gathering Sparks, is a dynamic journey through art, artifacts and digital media that illuminates, narrates and celebrates Jewish history and culture, which is ultimately a celebration of not only contemporary life but of all humanity. The exhibit encourages an ongoing conversation about where we came from and where we’re going – no matter who we are. Denver Mayor Bill Vidal called it “a new gem in Denver’s cultural landscape.”
Utilizing art and artifacts from the museum’s collection and borrowed art from around the world, Curator Georgina Kolber developed a historical, educational, yet atypical exhibit. Kolber, together with local artist Scott Lyon and museum staff, replaced the usual displays of historical objects, art and documents with a storyline that is both abstract and visual. The 4,000 years of Jewish stories, culture and symbolism can be connected with on many levels, from the most learned Jewish historian’s to the everyday grade school students’.
Guided tours for individuals and groups are offered, and can be tailored to the needs and interests of your group. Explore our web site for programs and events that can serve as companion programs to an exhibit tour.
