Shelter-in-place Extended Through June

June 4, 2020

Update June 4, 2020: The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life remains 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 staff are following protocols set by university & municipal authorities to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 through social distancing, telecommuting, etc.

Please visit our FacebookInstagram, and Twitter feeds for daily updates and Flickr for digital access to the Collections. In the meantime, UC Berkeley’s Arts & Humanities Division has created a new space to share live digital content such as conversations, lectures, performances, and presentations.

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).
