Israel Art Trip & 57th Venice Biennale (DATE TBD)
This will be a collaboration between Art Connect Group & Friends of Bezalel. It is a 5 day intensive art trip to Israel followed by the Venice Biennale. Guaranteed to  be a culturally rich experience with a heavy focus but not limited to visual arts. The Israel portion of the trip will include meetings  with the most influential museum directors and Israeli artists. Some of our excursions will involve the culinary arts and we will enjoy meals prepared by master chefs.  Attend a performance at the highly esteemed Bat Sheva Dance Group. Meet founders of high tech firms  that are transforming the art world. One of these companies will include Muse Loop. Create your own art at Bezalel Academy of Art & Design. The second phase of the trip will include going to Venice for the 57th Biennale. We will meet  with the artist Gal Weinstein who has been selected to represent Israel together with the curator Tami Katz- Freiman.
