The title living legend is hard to live up to, but artist Jack Levine seems to have no problem with it, and his new exhibit, Jack Levine Retrospective shows us why. Levine began his career in the mid-1920s and early on was part of whats called Boston Expressionism. Over the years, he changed his style, but his focus has always been the same: politics and social justice. Levine has work hanging in the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Whitney Museum, the Fogg Art Museum and now Congregation Beth Israels Margolis Gallery. Theres an opening reception 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, December 11.
