The Voting for Art Acquisition Group contributes significantly to the Museum’s ability to update its collection with contemporary Israeli artworks

Voting for Art Acquisition Group

Chairperson: Yael Braun

Established in 2013 by the late Tzippi Suesskind, Orna Wertheim and Suzanne Landau

The Voting for Art Acquisition Group was established to enhance the Museum’s collection with contemporary Israeli artworks, by creating a group of highly engaged art lovers who are keen on contributing to the Museum and taking an active part in expanding its collections. The funds donated by the group members are earmarked exclusively for the acquisition of works for the Museum collection.

The group’s activities take place throughout the year, and its rich program includes a series of meetings, including guided tours of exhibitions, studio visits, and professional lectures. In addition, group members are invited to participate in professional art tours abroad (such as a trip to the Venice Art Biennale).

The group contributes significantly to the Museum’s ability to update its collections – of Israeli art, prints and drawings, and photography – with selected Israeli artworks, and to fill in any historical gaps that may arise. Throughout the year, the Museum’s curators present a wide selection of potential works to the group’s members for consideration; at the final meeting, the members decide, by majority vote, which of these works should be purchased. In its first decade of operation, the group has purchased more than 150 works of art for the Museum’s collection, at a total cost of over NIS 3 million.

Membership in the Acquisition Group is on an annual basis. The annual donation is NIS 15,000 (for a couple or an individual) and is deductible for tax purposes in Israel and other countries.

The donation must be completed before the start of the Hebrew year, when the group’s annual activity plan is also published.

In addition to participating in the Acquisition Group’s meetings and activities, members enjoy benefits reserved to Museum donors – such as invitations to opening events, personal guided tours, free admission into the Museum, and more.
