People who grew up in a certain time can almost plot their pasts in terms of the pictures in Henry Luce's LIFE Magazine: Long before there was an internet, with its constant bombardment of instantaneous imagery, the photojournalism tableau that was LIFE was packed with the stuff of memories - from the glitter of celebrity to the everyday exchanges of people all over the world. A little bit of each will be on display when the Month of Photography exhibit To Life! Images of Jewish Life from Life Magazine opens tomorrow at the Mizel Arts and Culture Center's Singer Gallery.

The show's sixty-some photographs do indeed capture both a cultured peek at Jewish celebrity (Leonard Bernstein conducting and entertainer Fanny Brice mugging at a microphone) and the depth of Jewish sorrow (Margaret Bourke-White's stark images of concentration camp inmates from the liberation of Buchenwald). Here's a short sneak peek.

The show, organized in collaboration with Denver's Michelle Mosko Fine Art, kicks off with a reception from 5:30 to 8 p.m. March 17; MACC and the Singer Gallery are inside the Robert E. Loup Jewish Community Center, 350 S. Dahlia Street. See it through May 15.
