Ezra Jack Keats Bookmaking Competition

San Francisco

The EJK Bookmaking Competition was brought to San Francisco in 2013 by the Contemporary Jewish Museum, after its success with the Keats retrospective, “The Snowy Day and the Art of Ezra Jack Keats.” The CJM worked with the San Francisco Unified School District and the San Francisco Public Library, and the results have been stellar. In 2015 the CJM was awarded the State Superintendent’s Award for Excellence in Museum Education—for its Bookmaking program.
