Dr. Asher Ben-Shmuel, Schlomit Gross and Dr. Micha Gross established the Bauhaus Center Tel Aviv in 2000. The center’s goal was to expand public recognition of the "White City" as a unique architectural and cultural site. Changing exhibitions and guided tours are dedicated to this purpose. The centers’ professional team is headed by the architects Shmuel Yavin and Alla Goren and the art historians Michal Minski and Naama Zwick.
The Tel Aviv Museum of Art is Israel’s leading museum of modern and contemporary art, and home to one of the world’s largest collections of Israeli art. Each year, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art welcomes more than 500,000 visitors, offering them over twenty annual Israeli and international art exhibitions. In addition to its collections, the Museum presents performances of music and dance, film, and lecture series on philosophy and art. The Helena Rubinstein Pavilion for Contemporary Art, an adjunct to the main building, functions as a showcase and platform for young talents.
The Museum was founded in 1965 and has, in a remarkably short period of time, become Israel’s leading cultural institution and one of the leading encyclopedic museums of the world. Nearly 500,000 objects of fine art, archaeology, Judaica and Jewish ethnography, representing the history of world culture from nearly one million years ago to the present day.
