Who we are The Jewish Art Salon is the largest, most-recognized Jewish visual art organization in the world. It is a global network of contemporary Jewish art. The Salon provides important programs and resources, and develops lasting partnerships with the international art community and the general public.

The Jewish Art Salon presents public events in the USA and Israel, and produces art projects with international art institutions. Since 2008 the Jewish Art Salon has organized dozens of art exhibits and events exploring Jewish themes, related to current issues. In the New York area it hosts occasional salon sessions with international artists and scholars.


History In 2008, Yona Verwer and Holly Wolf launched the Jewish Art Salon to create a forum for dialogue and shared experiences between artists and scholars.  Today, the Jewish Art Salon functions as a vital resource, authority and platform for the global art community and the general public. It is assisted by an international team of volunteers.
