In Twilight. Ori Sherman’s Creation 1986–1988
The work of Ori Sherman, an artist and illustrator beloved in the San Francisco Bay Area, was often infused with Jewish themes. At the end of his life after being diagnosed with AIDS, Sherman completed a cycle of 18 paintings depicting the seven days of the creation of the world as emerging directly from the Hebrew words in the Book of Genesis. Curated by Francesco Spagnolo, the original pieces are displayed together in this exhibition. | Explore the Exhibition
