Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership

On the ground floor of Spertus Institute, see work that shapes and gives expression to the Jewish experience. Exhibitions often feature new projects by contemporary artists and/or work from Spertus Institute's rich collection of arts, artifacts, and material culture. Located in the Spertus Institute's landmark faceted, glass building ny Krueck + Sexton Architects. 

In 2018, exhibitions include a commissioned, site-specific installation by Chicago-based artist Ellen Rothsberg (scheduled February 1-April 22, 2018) and a retrospective of moden American artist Todros Geller, drawn primarily from Spertus Institute's extensive holdings of his paintings, prints, drawings, preparatory sketches, photographs, and illustrations.
