The Wreck of the Jewish Museum

My article “The Wreck of the Jewish Museum” appears in Mosaic magazine.

Here’s the response from Tom Freudenheim, former assistant secretary for museums at the Smithsonian Institutions, former director of the museum program at the National Endowment for the Arts, and former director of several museums.

Here’s a second response from Edward Rothstein, critic-at-large for the Wall Street Journal and former cultural critic-at-large for The New York Times.

And here’s the third and final one from artist and writer Richard McBee.

Here’s my reply to Freudenheim, Rothstein, and McBee.

And here’s my interview on Tikvah’s podcast.

Update: Ben Schachter, professor of visual art at Saint Vincent College, responds to the articles in the Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle.
