The American Friends supports eight distinct, diverse museums in Israel ranging from the Tower of David Museum an archaeological wonder illuminating Jerusalem’s 3000-year history, to Haifa Museum of Art, Northern Israel’s leading center for contemporary art. Faced with social distancing and travel restrictions, our partner museums continue to find new ways to educate and connect people across the world. By providing online learning resources, exhibitions, tours, and public programs, they offer us moments of inspiration and hope.

The auction features over 60 works including paintings, sculptures, photographs, and works on paper by artists including:

AES+F, Hiro Ando, John Baldessari, Edward Burtynsky, Chuck Close, Jim Dine, Peter Doig, Katrin Fridriks, Nan Goldin, Bill Henson, Damien Hirst, David Hockney, Liu Jianhua, Alex Katz, Deborah Kass, Karen Knorr, Jeff Koons, Dongi Lee, Robert Longo, Alex Majoli, Ernesto Marenco, Andrew Moore, Shirin Neshat, Ed Ruscha, Richard Serra, Kiki Smith, Shinique Smith, Donald Sultan, Philip Taaffe, Rosemarie Trockel, Zhan Wang, and Ai Weiwei, among many others.

Partner Museums
Design Museum Holon, Haifa City Museum, Haifa Museum of Art, Hermann Struck Museum, Mané-Katz Museum, National Maritime Museum, Tikotin Museum of Japanese Art, and the Tower of David Museum of the History of Jerusalem.

The American Friends of Museums in Israel recognizes, promotes, and honors its outstanding partner museums in Israel by providing exhibition, program, project and financial support through the generosity of its donors. In addition, the American Friends provides heightened visibility for their partner museums through virtual programming and promotional material.
