What’s going on at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco? Well, there’s some “noshing” happening at the Project Mah Jongg exhibit and there also is still plenty of time to see the show. Here’s something fun happening there on what they are calling “Third Thursdays” (Jul 17, Aug 21, Sep 18, Oct 16 | 6-7pm):
On Third Thursdays, Project Mah Jongg artist Imin Yeh, and artist and pastry chef Leah Rosenberg will share stories as they roll out a limited edition screen printed Mah Jongg snack box. The noshes inside will be inspired by retro 1950s snacks that women across America nibbled while playing Mah Jongg. Surprises like coins, temporary tattoos, and more also included. A different treat and box design will be offered each month. Visitors can also join Yeh in building a paper Mah Jongg set. Limited edition of 50 boxes for purchase per event.
That’s Imin and Leah in the photo above.
Here are some Project Mah Jongg inspired events featured in September – and much thanks to Toby Salk for alerting us to all the fun!
On Sunday, September 14 bring your Mah Jongg set to The CJM and hear its secrets revealed. Scholars and enthusiasts Toby Alice Salk and Annelise Heinz will share some fascinating facts about antique and modern sets. You’ll also have the chance to share your own stories with Annelise Heinz and be included in her study of the history of American Mah Jongg. Then join your friends for a game during Open Play!
Continue the fun with Jews for Dim Sum the following Thursday, September 18. You’ll join Project Mah Jongg artist Imin Yeh, and artist and pastry chef Leah Rosenberg as they share stories and roll out a limited edition screen printed snack box. Visitors can also join Yeh in building a paper mah jongg set.
