Event description

Description

From the Gold Rush frontier, to the range of the Wild West, to rock n’ roll concert stages, blue jeans have been a defining symbol of American style. Join us to celebrate this American icon at a Blue Jean Ball—inspired by the upcoming original exhibition, Levi Strauss: A History of American Style, an exploration of the Jewish immigrant story of Levi Strauss, the origins of the blue jeans, and how they defined American style and became a worldwide phenomenon.

The Family Gala is a time for kids, parents, grandparents, and friends to come together for a night of celebration as The CJM transforms into a gold mining town, the western frontier, and a concert stage, featuring performances, art making, interactive games, and fun!

Proceeds from the Family Gala support our award-winning education, family, and access programs, which bring Jewish art and ideas to more than 20,000 visitors each year.
