Commitments highlights the sculptural creations of Marlene Louchheim, a unique artist whose work is about more than replicating large-scale burlap sacks using a variety of metals. Her art pieces talk to each other — about love, about distance, about fear and tenderness. Above all, perhaps, they talk about commitment and the need to heal the world. Commitments features four works by Louchheim that range from small, intimate sculptures to towering aluminum and bronze bags.
Organized by the Enhancement Committee of HUC-JIR's Jack H. Skirball Campus in Los Angeles and curator Anne Hromadka. This exhibition is made possible through the generosity of HUC-JIR, the Lochheim family, and Sue Neuman Hochberg.

Deeply Rooted is an exhibition exploring the connection between the two primordial trees in the Garden of Eden: the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Four artists present literal and metaphoric understandings of these powerful symbols as they have developed over the centuries and have been used in science, religion and philosophy. Deeply Rooted features works by Gary Frederick Brown, Bonita Helmer, Maddy LeMel, and Hillel Smith.
Organized by Anne Hromadka, Guest Curator of the Art Collection and Exhibitions at HUC-JIR’s Jack H. Skirball Campus in Los Angeles, in partnership with campus’ Enhancement Committee.
