Cut and Paste: A Purim Pop-Up Studio

Celebrate the themes of Purim through a hands-on paper cutting and collage studio evening with food and drinks. All levels of art experience are welcome!

*We are no longer accepting online ticket sales. Tickets will be available at the door for $20!

Masks! Heroes! Secret identities! The parallels between comic books and Purim aren’t just narrative—many comic book icons originated from young Jewish artists and their reimagination of biblical ideas. Join us for a night of drinks, art, and creativity at a hands-on studio class to explore these overlapping values and themes through paper cutting and collage.

Monday, March 25 at 7:00 pm

Tickets include beer and wine, Kosher dairy meal, and all art materials.

This pop-up studio workshop will be led by Isaac and Rabbi Shawna Brynjegard-Bialik, a husband and wife “dynamic duo” specializing in comic books, paper-cutting, and connecting pop culture with sacred texts. Their art has been shown in galleries across the United States, and they regularly lead workshops to bring Jewish scholarship together with a contemporary reinterpretation of the traditional art of papercutting.
