The Big Idea (in their own words)
Art Space Match offers a service to Jewish artists and the greater Jewish community of Los Angeles. Artists receive free spaces to create their work, while institutions benefit from the creative practices and participation of their artist in residence, bringing in new audiences and enhancing their programming for constituents. The possible success stories are unlimited: An artist, through a synagogue, meets a patron of their work. The young people coming to a dance class led by an artist at a JCC begin to attend JCC activities. A Jewish camp, inspired by the artists’ work, creates an event bringing diverse members of their community together. Read more
