Description

Current ADSNY members are invited to attend this year's free Annual Meeting at the beautiful Temple Emanu-El.

This year's meeting will include an illustrated talk offering a glimpse of ADSNY’s March 2018 tour Exploring the Roots of Modernism in Tel Aviv and Beyond, which will focus on the arts, culture, architecture, and design in 1920s and 30s “Eretz Israel.”

This talk, presented by ADSNY's President, Roberta Nusim, will include:

  • A look into the architecture and design of the White City of Tel Aviv, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its 4,000+ modernist buildings
  • A glimpse at the Levant Fairgrounds, which attracted over 300,000 visitors when it opened in 1932
  • Highlights of the unique architecture and design in Haifa, Israel’s third largest city
  • A look at the newly restored 1937 Kibbutz building originally designed by prominent Israeli architect Joseph Neufeld
  • Artistic works of Reuven Rubin as well as a taste of 1930s poster art that developed in Israel during this period
  • Stunning Jazz Age fashion illustrations by a young woman who made her way from Jerusalem to Paris in the 1920s
  • A look into the newly restored residence of Chaim Weizmann, Israel’s first president, designed by Erich Mendelsohn
  • Modernist buildings in Jerusalem, including its legendary Jerusalem International YMCA building, designed by the New York architect, Arthur Loomis Harmon, of Shreve Lamb and Harmon–the firm that designed the Empire State building.

Though this event is free to current members advanced registration is required. If you would like to check your membership status, please email Info@ArtDeco.org today.
