Tel Aviv Museum of Art

On our last day in Israel we had a tour of the newly opened Herta and Paul Amir Building at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. It was designed by architecture firm Preston Scott Cohen, and it is astonishing.

We were given our tour while the gallery was closed (star treatment!) so there were a few people cleaning and I thought it was hilarious that this one guy rested his broom right on the sculpture! (I hope this doesn’t get him in any trouble, he was doing a great job!)

Anyways, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art is a must-see if you ever get the chance to go to Israel!

Motion-control artist Bruce Shapiro’s “Sisyphus” is an incredible sand drawing machine that creates elaborate patterns using magnets (click here for previous post). While several installations have been set up in countries around the world, Shapiro is now working toward a version people can enjoy in their own homes!
