    Contemporary Jewish Museum: The Art of Rube Goldberg; Contraption - Rediscovering California Jewish Artists

    Contraption artists: Judith Belzer, Carol Bernard, Edward Biberman, Boris Deutsch, Miriam Dym, Bella Feldman, Howard Fried, Rube Goldberg, John Gutmann, Bruce Handelsman, Ned Kahn, Richard Kamler, Bernie Lubell, Irving Norman, Annabeth Rosen, Sheri Simons.

    Comment by AB: On the first floor, experience charged editorial cartoons, schematics of unnecessarily complicated machines for performing nonsensical tasks, and sundry memorabilia commemorating the career of Rube Goldberg (1883-1970). In keeping with the mechanical theme, see vintage and contemporary examples of contraption-related art by California Jewish artists. Stop on by. Good show on both counts.
