Singing Stars Out at Night Among Israel Museum Sculptures


It is the season of outdoor concerts and events, and the Israel Museum’s sculpture garden is a particularly magical spot for listening to music under the skies.

The idea of the concerts, said museum events planner Neta Cohen, is to bring different audiences to the museum, and specifically to the garden, paying homage to the mix of modern sculptures placed strategically along its paths and pebbled areas.

The sculptures are many and varied, from classic sculptors such as Henry Moore and Auguste Rodin to modernists like Pablo Picasso, Robert Indiana and James Turrell.

There are sinewed bodies and Cubist forms, white-bricked structures and silvered tree branches (which are meant to mimic the body’s veins) reaching up to the sky.
