Arieh Sharon: Architect of the State

In honor of Israel’s 70th anniversary, examine one of the most active Israeli architects of the 20th century, who literally built the country as it grew into the landscape we enjoy today. The exhibit presents a comprehensive view and critical examination of Sharon’s shaping of Israeli space. Working through historical contexts heavy with meaning, he designed kibbutzim, residential buildings, office buildings, hospitals, university campuses, and the first master plan for the State. With blueprints, illustrations, models, photographs, letters, and more, the exhibit charts Sharon’s personal and professional life as well as his role in structuring the country.

Beauty of Silence

Fujimura’s art lies in their creation, spontaneous but the outcome of training and introspection. Using traditional Japanese art tools, (powder pigments produced from minerals, soils, corals, semi-precious stones, and some gold and silver leaf), he concentrates on his emotions and thoughts expressing “unmediated directness” on paper and canvas. The results are abstract and innovative, characterizing western modernism and traditional Japanese painting. He also often adds gold inscriptions, usually Bible quotes, making him one of the leading contemporary artists to combine art and faith. Comparing the various ink stains and pigments dancing across the surface to musical sounds, he creates a unifying harmony, meant to symbolize the whole world. Ponder philosophical dilemmas and internal questions across Fujimura’s innovatively abstract paintings.   There will be an artist talk in English on Feb 26th at 17:00.

Be´er Sheva Performing Arts Center

The Be´er Sheva Performing Arts center was founded in the early 1970’s by two actresses: Margalit Stander and Naomi Blumenthal. After being founded, the center suffered a rocky start, with difficulties in finding patrons and actors to take part in productions. However, the staff believed in the performing arts center and it garnered more support throughout the years. Today, it houses two of Be´er Sheva's most prominent performing arts groups; the Be´er Sheva Symphony Orchestra and the Be´er Sheva Theater. In addition to musical and theatrical productions, the performing arts center also hosts many events and conventions.
