AMERICAN FRIENDS OF THE ISRAEL MUSEUM


American Friends of the Israel Museum

invites you to stay home for the 2020 Gala


Times like these remind us of how vital art and culture are. While we must remain apart this year, we are asking you to please help sustain AFIM and the Israel Museum for generations to come at a time when support from our donors is more important than ever.

ABOUT THE EVENT


Rather than hosting a "virtual live" event on October 27, we will be sharing an exclusive love letter to the IMJ, with video messages from artists and museum staff highlighting works from the collection and all the ways that the IMJ sustains us, even from a distance, that will be available for viewing here and on our YouTube Channel soon.


With the loss of visitors this year, as well as many other crucial revenue streams due to COVID-19, the Israel Museum faces unprecedented financial strain, and as a result must now take additional steps to mitigate the pandemic’s impact and to keep this museum as a resource for our future. While this is a difficult time for all of us, we have every reason to look ahead with hope and confidenceand to look forward to when we will next be together as a community.




In appreciation of your donation to this year’s AFIM Gala, you will receive a special portfolio of a limited edition print from the following participating artists:

Olafur Eliasson

Alex Israel

Rashid Johnson

Robert Longo

Nicolas Party

Alexis Rockman

Michal Rovner
