Virtual Tours of Levi Strauss: A History of American Style The Contemporary Jewish Museum will offer a thirty to a forty-five-minute live, guided virtual tour of the exhibition Levi Strauss: A History of American Style via Zoom. The tour explores the story of nineteenth-century Jewish immigrant Levi Strauss, including his journey from Bavaria to California, the establishment of Levi Strauss & Co., the history of the gold rush–era San Francisco, and the popularization of blue jeans into the twenty-first century. A CJM educator will take you for a deep virtual dive of the exhibition, including digital viewing of archival materials, images, and artifacts. The tour weaves together a story of escape from persecution, the building of San Francisco, and the creation of that iconic symbol of American style, the blue jean.
