Arts and Culture
The Baruch Performing Arts Center (BPAC) presents numerous concerts, plays, readings, discussions, and shows throughout the year that are available to the general public. In 2008, BPAC presented the world premiere of Irena’s Vow, produced by the Director’s Company, and featured Tony Award nominee Tovah Feldshuh.
The National Yiddish Theatre-Folksbiene, the oldest continuous running Yiddish theater in the world, is in residence at the Baruch Performing Arts Center. For 96 years, The National Yiddish Theatre-Folksbiene has sought to excite the pride and joy of Jewish identity and peoplehood in every generation by building on our history and Yiddish heritage, and providing audiences with excellent, stirring and enjoyable performing arts experiences.
Every year, the Sidney Mishkin Gallery at Baruch College offers small, museum-quality shows to the community, which emphasize scholarly, multicultural, one-person and group shows, and exhibitions out of the American mainstream. It regularly features Jewish artists, including “Search for the Real: Drawings by Hans Hofmann and his Students,” November/December 2010.
