The Skirball Museum celebrates Israel’s 70th birthday with a wide-ranging exhibition of art and artifacts drawn from the museum’s core collections and from the B’nai B’rith Klutznick National Jewish Museum Collection, now housed at the Skirball. The exhibition will explore early pioneers of Israeli art as well as modern masters, and will include paintings, sculpture, silversmith work, and photography.
On Sunday, May 6 at 4 pm, we invite you to join musician Yael Front and a 3-person band for an exploration of the history of Israeli popular music since the founding of the State of Israel in 1948. From the Hora, through Eurovision contest winners, to contemporary pop chart hits, it will be an afternoon of song and celebration! Reception to follow performance.
Free and open to the public.
