We've been meaning to go check out Arnold Newman: Masterclass at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco for a while now and are so glad we did. It is truly an impressive exhibition of one of the most productive, creative, influencial and successful portrait photographers of the twentieth century. Newman, who passed away in 2006 photographed famous artists, creatives, scientists, intellectuals, authors, and statesman with great sensitivity and care, incorporating each subjects personal environment, work, and intellectual background in his photographs.

A museum show we have been looking forward to all winter: Former cover artist, Kehinde Wiley, will be showing The World Stage: Israel series at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco beginning on February 14, 2013. The former SFAI student has turned his World Stage series into one of the most exciting, and revered series in contemporary art, and we are very excited that CJM, who has had great shows over the past few years, will bring the World Stage to SF.
