Voices & Visions is about art, about powerful messages, about combining them into posters, about starting conversations, about continuing the Jewish journey.
The Voices & Visions concept was inspired by the Container Corporation of America’s Great Ideas series. Launched as an ad campaign in the 1950s, the Container Corporation paired quotes and graphic design and published the images once a month. Quickly, the campaign moved away from advertising and started to become an art phenomenon.
A collector and appreciator of Great Ideas, Harold Grinspoon, the founder of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, decided to use this model as the inspiration for a new and dynamic vision to engage the Jewish people in conversations regarding their own identity.
In late 2012 Voices & Visions released its debut Masters Series. A collection of 18 images, the series pairs leading figures of contemporary art and design with powerful quotes from Jewish thinkers across the ages. Originally offered as a limited release, the Masters Series took off and is now being used by Jewish organizations around the world.
Organizations have used the images to beautify their spaces, spark conversations, contribute to their curricula, and create new programming. The series is offered as a gift to organizations interested in using the images in their community space.
In April 2015 Voices & Visions released its Proudly Jewish series, a collection six posters that "exemplify the values and ideas that Judaism teaches".
Voices & Visions continues to produce new series and is focused on providing educators a space to share their programs with others. Many of the programs are now available in The Exchange on our website.
