Schedule of Exhibits By Each venue
Spanning the Jewish year and taking on a festival approach, Bread & Salt is a series of meaningful forums engaging the public through exhibitions, performance, dance, and learning opportunities. Our multi-venue approach encourages participants to travel between sites using cultural curiosity as a way to attract Angelenos to our diverse partners.
