The Asylum Arts network, launched with the support of the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, held the Asylum Arts International Jewish Artist Retreat from May 3-6 in Garrison, N.Y. The 80 attendees included artists, choreographers, playwrights, musicians, composers, photographers, filmmakers, screenwriters, poets, and writers.
