OK New Yorkers, these are pretty great.
JUST IN! Our newest pride and joy, an homage to our fine city: the New York City Water Tower Tzedakah Boxes.
The rustic rooftop water tower, a signature feature of New York City’s skyline, has inspired generations of painters, sculptors, photographers, and filmmakers. From Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O’Keeffe, to Rachel Whiteread and Tom Fruin, the “silent sentinels” of our city have ignited artists’ imaginations. Now, Los Angeles-based ceramicist Gaby Tepper has interpreted the water tower’s unique charm and distinctive architectural silhouette in a series of handmade tzedakah boxes. Each box is a one-of-a-kind work of art formed, etched, fired, and finished in Tepper’s studio—a functional sculpture made exclusively for us at The Jewish Museum.
The official trailer for “WORDLESS!” Here’s your sneak peek of the show.

Art Spiegelman talks about the exhibition “Co-Mix: A Retrospective” at The Jewish Museum, which celebrates his career and work. It’s the first U.S. retrospective that spans Spiegelman’s career: from his early days in underground “comix” to the genesis of Maus to his provocative covers for The New Yorker to his artistic collaborations. He also talks about “Wordless” at BAM, an innovative hybrid of slides, talk, and musical performance created in collaboration with acclaimed jazz composer Phillip Johnston.
