Extended Closure

March 17, 2020

The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life will be closed until further notice in compliance with Alameda County’s and the City of Berkeley’s shelter in place order. The health and safety of our community is very important to us; our students and staff are following protocols set by UC Berkeley and Alameda County to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 through social distancing, telecommuting, etc.

Please visit our FacebookInstagram, and Flickr feeds for daily updates and digital access to the Collection.

In anticipation of your visit when we reopen, explore the following pages for our current exhibitions:

·   In Real Times | Arthur Szyk: Art & Human Rights (1926-1951),

·   An Archive of Archives: Roman Vishniac’s Exhibition History | New York, 1971-72, and

·   Souvenirs from Utopia: The Bezalel School of Arts and Crafts in Jerusalem (1906-1932).
