Welcome to Yaaana's first silent art auction! This is a virtual event that will feature live music and special guests!
Welcome to Yaaana's first silent art auction! This is a virtual event that will feature live music and special guests! We are offering a collection of Seymour Rosenthal’s most representative artwork. Seymour Joseph Rosenthal was born and raised in the Bronx, New York City, in 1921 and was a child of the “Great Depression”. He was a self-taught artist who started drawing at the age of 5 and didn’t stop until his dying year. His art features Yiddish spirituality, culture, and daily life, combined with the struggle of the American working class during the Great Depression.
The funds obtained through this auction will be essential to make YAAANA's new projects, Yiddishland and Yiddish Theater Academy, a reality, allowing us to fulfill our ultimate goal of promoting and preserving the Yiddish language and culture both on the West Coast and internationally. If you are interested in Jewish contemporary art and would like to contribute to our noble cause, then this event is for you!
