Mishkan Museum Of Art: Timeless Treasure

Join us as we introduce you to the Mishkan Museum of Art, Ein Harod. Founded in 1937, the brainchild of Israeli artist and kibbutz member Haim Atar, Mishkan was established in the heart of the kibbutz community. Its founders believed that art, culture, knowledge, and understanding were essential. Today Mishkan located in the north of Israel is lauded as a respected museum and exhibition space for local, national, and international artists.

The museum houses a large and diverse collection of Jewish art from the late 19th and early 20th century and boasts some of the most groundbreaking exhibits, along with an extensive collection of Judaica and Israeli art. Its structure has inspired some of the 20th century’s most iconic buildings.

During this first installment of our two-part series featuring Mishkan, we will learn from the museum’s professional staff:
The history of the museum and what makes it unique;
Why Mishkan is a multi-cultural institute that holds true to the values of pluralism and tolerance through the personal stories from professional staff;

What makes Mishkan’s collection of Jewish and Israeli art unparalleled; and
What’s next for Mishkan … the vision for its future.
