Dorit Jordan Dotan was selected together with 10 artists from the Chicago area to participate. An exhibit of their work will be mounted in 2017 at Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership.
Ten Chicago-area artists have been selected to participate in the Midwest Jewish Artists Lab, an innovative project designed to forge collaborations, inspire new work, and broaden the impact of the arts in Jewish life. The Chicago chapter begins this fall at Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership, where, according to Spertus Provost and Vice President Dr. Dean Bell, “Jewish arts and cultural expression are considered key components of Jewish learning, community building, identity, and spirituality.”
Jewish Art Salon members Gabriella Boros, Ellen Holtzblatt and Judith Joseph will exhibit work in Voices of Wisdom, this year’s inaugural exhibition of the Spertus Institute’s new Ground Level Arts Lab, opening September 25.The works were created in conjunction with the Midwest Jewish Artists Lab, in which Spertus brought the artists together for conversation, critiques, and community-building.
Dorit Jordan Dotan, multidisciplinary artist, was born in 1961, in Haifa, Israel. Jordan-Dotan has recently relocated to Chicago, where she lives and works.
For the past twenty years, she has run her own independent graphic design studio.
Most of her clients have been non-profit Israeli-Palestinian organizations active in the areas of peace, co-existence, women’s issues and human rights. She has created an impressive body of mixed media fine art images and photographs, including architectural, textural and urban genres.
Directly through her modern interpretations, the art she has been creating in recent years has increasingly brought Ms. Jordan Dotan closer to the substance of Judaism.
She has created a wide variety of hand-painted ketubot, incorporating ancient and modern designs.
Ms. Jordan Dotan is currently acting as guest curator at the Lubeznik Center for the Arts, Michigan City, Indiana for an upcoming 2017 exhibition.
