Great place to see contemporary Israeli art
NileGuide Expert tip:
Free entrance. Stop by at the Mona Cafe next door.
Housed in the Ottoman-Turkish buildings of the original Bezalel Academy of Art and Design (the school has now moved to the Hebrew University campus), this remarkable cooperative gallery, sponsored by the Jerusalem Municipality and the Israeli government, represents more than 500 juried Israeli artists, ranging from the famous and established to the newest and most promising. Upstairs, you'll find a changing array of one-person and group exhibits. The staff of the Artists' House can put you in touch with any artist whose work interests you, and they will arrange for the shipping of your purchase. The gallery is open Sunday to Thursday from 10am to 1pm and 4 to 7pm, Friday 10am to 1pm, and Saturday 11am to 2pm.
