Full of curious circles, triangles, and rectangles that somehow mesh together, Ohad Meromi's artwork, called 1967, sits atop a large wooden platform that practically begs people to step on it. Museums don't allow that, though – not usually, anyway. But today is not like any ordinary museum day. The acclaimed saxophonist Jon Raskin – a founding member of the Rova Saxophone Quartet – will perform before Meromi's 1967, accompanied by dancer Justin Morrison. Artgoers will be able to climb on the platform in this "activation" of Meromi's artwork. It's all part of the Contemporary Jewish Museum's exhibit, "Work in Progress: Considering Utopia," which features the work of Meromi and two other artists. Immersing one's self in art, music, and dance at the same time? Now, that's utopian.
