Sukkot Celebration Under Our Virtual Sukkah
Please Join ChaiVillageLA for a Joyous and Meaningful Virtual Sukkot Celebration:
Featuring a Very Special and Inspirational Guest,
James Grashow, Cardboard Sculptor, Woodcutter, and Graphic Artist (the Father of Rabbi Zoë Klein Miles)
In order to appreciate James Grashow's talk, we suggest that you view in advance "The Cardboard Bernini," an engaging documentary about the creation of one of Grashow's major works, inspired by the Trevi Foundation.
The documentary is available on Amazon Prime. For $1.99, you can rent it for 48 hours.
Contact the office if you have questions about accessing Amazon Prime.
James (Jimmy) Grashow is an American sculptor and woodcut artist. He is perhaps best known for his sculptures and large-scale installations (such as cities, fountains, and menageries) made of cardboard.
Grashow was born in Brooklyn, NY and received his BFA and MFA degrees from Pratt Institute. He then received a Fulbright Travel Grant to study in Florence. Based in Connecticut, his works has been exhibited at many museums including the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park in Lincoln, MA; the Art Complex Museum in Duxbury, MA; the Center for the Arts at SUNY Purchase; and the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke, VA.
Grashow also created cover art for record albums such as Jethro Tull's 1969 Stand Up and the 1971 Yardbirds' Live Yardbirds: Featuring Jimmy Page.
He is the subject of a 2012 documentary, The Cardboard Bernini, describing the creation, exhibition, anticipated decay, and ultimate destruction of an enormous cardboard fountain, inspired by the Trevi Fountain in Rome and the work of Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
