8x8 Event Concept Creator

Jeff Levine

Eight-by-Eight was created in 2010 by Jeff Levine, current CEO of ModMedia. Levine based the name on the number 8, which is a symbol for the Hebrew word for life, or "Chai."

"So," says Levine, "8x8 is a double portion of life, or a life doubly-blessed."

Levine is thrilled to see his concept come to life for the 6th year in a row at the Museum of Biblical Art. He offers his gratitude by saying, "thanks to all who help share the Museum's programs with deserving kids and art-loving adults."
