Stephen S. Wise Temple presents BENEFIT: An Israeli Art Auction in conjunction with its Israel Independence Day celebration. Curated and Chaired by Sharon Zoldan of SZ | Advisory, and in partnership with Paddle8, the event, which took place Saturday, May 3-5, 2014, highlighted over 40 Israeli artists who donated more than 70 artworks.
Our goal was to broaden the awareness of contemporary art from Israel, including the exposure of Israelis living and working in the United States. BENEFIT was an aesthetic and political dialogue with the universal language of art as its platform.
Artists included Modern Master Ofer Lellouche, Alex Kremer, Alona Harpaz, Eran Shakine, Guy Avital, Guy Yanai, Irit Hemmo, Maya Bloch, Maya Gold, Meital Yaniv, Menashe Kadishman, Michael Moshe Dahan, Neta Harari, Ofir Dor, Orly Maiberg, Shai Azoulay, Sivan Reuven, Roy Mordechay, and many more. Join us in supporting Israel by supporting its talent. Proceeds benefit the temple and participating artists.
