The Mazin Annual Art Exhibition was conceived and created by Bernice and Benjamin Mazin and the Jewish Community Center’s Visual Arts Committee. The event is funded by the Mazin Visual Arts Fund and is a regional juried art exhibition of 2-D and 3-D art, open to residents of Kentuckiana 18 years and older.
