‘Scenes from the Collection’

Manhattan’s Jewish Museum has added a small-scale version of Deb Kass’s sculpture OY/YO to “Scenes from the Collection,” on exhibit for the first time. “Scenes from the Collection” transforms the museum’s third floor with nearly 600 works, divided into seven different sections. Kass uses New York City’s universal lingo to communicate the pride and exasperation of living in New York City in her sculpture “OY/YO,” originally conceived as a monumental sculpture that was installed for a short time in Brooklyn Bridge Park. It became an instant New York icon and photo op for tourists and residents of all backgrounds, for whom the pluralistic spirit of the double-sided interjection resonated deeply. Fifth Avenue and 92nd Street. (212) 423-3337 or TheJewishMuseum.org/calendar.
