This event has ended.

The exhibition features works by seven artists, including three major sculptural installations relating to Hanukkah. Alice Aycock’s Greased Lightning (1984), is a motorized kinetic sculpture featuring an oversized moving dreidel, the small, inscribed top that children play with during the holiday. Lynn Godley's Miracle (2004), an animated, monumental Hanukkah lamp, uses multiple lights to evoke the cumulative effect of progressively lighting the candles over eight nights. Robot Lights the Chanukah Candles (1985) by Mike Mandel is from his series playfully called “robot motion studies.”
