President’s Message
�10 Portraits
of Jews of the
Twentieth Century’
by Andy Warhol
By Penny Deshur, President
have a passion for genealogy and have been searching for my family
roots for the past thirty years, beginning with 50 known family members
and expanding to thousands. When my grandparents were alive I never
asked about their lives, and by the time I was interested in the subject, they
were gone. Now I am compelled to pass my family’s history to my children
and grandchildren so they know where they came from.
JMM offers many opportunities for YOU to become involved in this
important endeavor…
By Molly Dubin, Curator
ore than thirty years after the suite was first
created, this grouping of �Jewish Geniuses,’
as Warhol fittingly referred to them, is still
sparking debate among art critics, historians and
connoisseurs. Warhol, one of the most important
artists in the Pop Art movement in America,
became as famous as many of the celebrities he
portrayed in his popular silkscreen prints. Depicting
noted individuals from various disciplines, these
brightly-colored creations feature historical figures
and renowned luminaries of Jewish culture. Large
scale portraits of Sarah Bernhardt, Louis Brandeis,
Martin Buber, Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud,
George Gershwin, Franz Kafka, the Marx Brothers,
Golda Meir, and Gertrude Stein, allude to the
grandiosity associated with fame while establishing
an intimacy between subject and viewer. In the
second millennium, Warhol’s iconic images of great
Jewish thinkers, politicians, performers, and writers
attest to the lasting achievements and prominence of
these singular figures. But issues at the foundation of
the controversy surrounding the pieces, such as
whether Warhol genuinely recognized the
importance of his subjects’ diverse accomplishments
and legacies, or if he was engaging in
�Jewploitation’, remain firmly rooted. While the
initial reception of the series was certainly affected
by the context and time in which they were created,
the longevity and continued relevance of the images
also call into question their place and perception
amid contemporary generations and standards.
This exhibit is on loan from the collection of the Spertus
Institute and is sponsored by Suzy B. Ettinger.
• On the Museum website I maintain the burial database covering nearly
30,000 Jewish burials throughout Wisconsin. You may find names of your
family members, dates, places of birth and death, the cemetery where they are
buried, photos of tombstones and perhaps even a reference to a death notice in the Wisconsin
Jewish Chronicle. Are we missing your relatives? Is there a correction to be made? Would you be
willing to join me for a trip to a cemetery so we can photograph tombstones? I would love your help.
• Our Archives contain many family histories and family artifacts. Do we have your family history?
Have you participated in an oral history? Can you help us add to our collection?

�Andy Warhol’s Minyan: Reconsidering his �Ten
Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century’
Thursday, February 6 at 11:00 am
With James Yood, Professor of Contemporary
Art History and Criticism at the School of the
Art Institute of Chicago.
Warhol’s portrait suite was received with both
critical acclaim and some decidedly negative
responses on its debut in 1980. This illustrated
lecture will revisit that debut and examine the
series itself, its place in Warhol’s art, and analyze
why it provoked such a wide response. Yood,
who was educated at the University of Wisconsin
– Madison and the University of Chicago, sees
the series as indicative of much of Warhol’s art—
seemingly simple and straightforward, but
surprisingly pertinent and provocative.

following individuals and foundations:

By Kathie Bernstein
major responsibility as Executive Director is to make sure there are adequate operating funds to
pay staff, occupancy costs, heat, lights, phones, office supplies, computers, special exhibit
cleaning, and a guard on Sundays. We provide educational programs, lectures, conduct oral
histories, and create print Newsletters and e-newsletters to keep our members up-to-date. We
accomplish all of this with an allocation from the Milwaukee Jewish Federation, grant writing, and the
generosity of our members and donors. We have grown as an institution over the past 5 years, and so
have the expenses associated with our expanded exhibits schedule. Each new exhibit requires display
panels, signage, installation fees, rental fees, insurance fees, lighting, and marketing -- separate funding
that is not part of our operating budget.
The staff and Board of Trustees sincerely thank you for your support this past year and ask you to
consider a contribution to the Museum over and above your membership to ensure our ability to
provide the highest level of exhibits and programs possible in the year ahead. Thank you for your
consideration. And visit your Museum soon!
Educator’s Report
By Ellie Gettinger
elow is a list of some of the groups that have benefited from a visit to our Museum during the
first part of this fiscal year. Group tours have come from throughout the city, the state, Illinois

his exciting exhibit examines the Jewish influences in rock and
roll and popular music through representational sampling of
the countless singers, songwriters, musicians, concert
promoters and record company executives who worked on stage
and behind the scenes to build a musical foundation and rich legacy
which continues to thrive today.
Well before the birth of rock and roll more than 60 years ago,
music inspired and was inspired by historical, cultural and social
events. Arrangements and beats originating in Eastern Europe and
Russia crossed the Atlantic to America where they found footing at
Tin Pan Alley and fused with diverse sounds to create scores to
delight theater and movie going audiences on both coasts before
permeating the nation and nearly every melodic category to
become part of the world’s collective musical consciousness where
it continues to influence the industries cutting edge. Through
biographies and stories exploring the breadth and diversity of rock,
and artifacts, including concert posters, records, books and
photographs, this exhibit illustrates the importance of Jews in the
evolution and popularity of this genre of contemporary music.
Organized by National Exhibitions & Archives LLC
April 20 – July 27, 2014
