Hey, Wow! The Art of Oded Halahmy

Locate number 15 on your map.  Now on view in the Selz Foundation Gallery is "Hey Wow."  Presented by Yeshiva University Museum, this exhibition features the mixed-media work of New York and Jaffa-based artist Oded Halahmy.  With roots in Iraq and Israel, Halahmy's lyrical sculptures span from expressive abstraction to simple but vivid figuration. His work reflects the rich complex history of Jewish heritage in Babylonia, and celebrates the notion of homeland. "Hey Wow" explores themes originating in a popular Hebrew song written in Iraq. Look closely, what Hebrew letters do you see?  How many pomegranates and palm trees can you find?

This concludes your tour of the exhibitions, but there are still plenty of things to do and see here at the Center for Jewish History.
