Join Women’s Philanthropy for a virtual tour of the “Hello, Gorgeous” Exhibition on Barbra Streisand at the Bernard Museum at Temple Emanu-El in New York.
With full-blown Brooklyn moxie, the young singer dismissed as too Jewish, too plain and too obstinate upended the celebrity pantheon by refusing to let anyone rain on her parade.
So what if she was born in Israel Zion Hospital and refused to pretend that Flatbush didn’t course through her veins? If she didn’t have a pert button nose or conform to anyone else’s view of femininity?
Barbra Streisand was too talented to be ignored. A force of nature, she not only parlayed her vocal prowess and unique style into international stardom; she redefined female celebrity, paving the way for a new generation of women performers — and millions of Jews — to unapologetically be themselves.
The arc of Barbra’s story unfolds on our gallery walls, providing a glimpse behind the scenes of her life.
Curator Warren Klein will take you on a virtual tour of the exhibition and describe some behind the scenes stories and objects.
