Paint by Numbers
This exhibit, including work by more than 30 artists, explores the power of numbers as a source of inspiration and meaning. The artists contributing to this exhibit represent a diversity of age, gender, nationality, and cultural heritage. The use of numbers in Jewish rituals, daily life, and belief goes back to Biblical times. Think of the seven days of creation, the 631 mitzvot, the 40 days of the Flood, and animals going two by two. Dates of disaster and success are also prominent as in 1492 for the Expulsion from Spain and 1948 for the Founding of the State of Israel. Numbers provide the underlying principles in physics and math, and in life itself.
