Goldman Art Gallery

The Bender JCC is proud to offer adults and students of all ages meaningful exhibits revolving around the Jewish experience, identity, and culture in a beautiful, warm, and welcoming gallery space.



VETERANS DAY RECEPTION WITH THE ARTISTS: Sunday, November 11, 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM 

Created by veterans as a non-traditional art therapy vehicle, Infantry Art helps veterans challenged with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) express and process the pain, trauma and loss on their journey to recovery. Using mortar shells and paint, explosion art turns the deadly explosives into a powerful mechanism for expression and healing. The resulting works create a dramatic and chaotic representation of their experiences.
