About The Event

“…the era documented in the smart, split-level show… at the Jewish Museum, an institution that, we learn, played a significant role in the cultural shifts.” —The New York Times

“A spectacular historical show of art and documentation.” —The New Yorker

Join Assistant Curator Kristina Parsons for a private group tour of The Jewish Museum’s New York: 1962–1964, The New York Times Critic’s Pick exhibition which explores a pivotal three-year period in the history of art and culture in New York City. During this timeframe, epoch-changing events—such as the Cuban Missile Crisis (1962), March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom (1963), and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy (1963)—fundamentally altered the social and political landscape of New York City, and the nation. The exhibition examines how artists living and working in New York responded to this rapidly changing world, through more than 180 works of art—all made or seen in New York between 1962-1964.
