Description
Join Epy Pengelly, Armiger for a virtual visit of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem. Epy is a museum professional that specializes in museum lighting and exhibition design, so expect some behind-the-scenes practical considerations for the displays, as well as some in-depth information on highlighted objects! Founded in 1965, the museum is located in the heart of the city on a 20 acre campus. It is the largest cultural institution in the State of Israel, and houses encyclopedic collections, including works dating from prehistory to the present day, in its Archaeology, Fine Arts, and Jewish Art and Life Wings. It features the most extensive holdings of biblical and Holy Land archaeology in the world, so be prepared to see the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Model of Jerusalem in the Second Temple Period, and much more! This session will not be recorded.
