In 2014 the Tel Aviv Arts Council launched in partnership with Outset Israel the Young International Artist Award. Each year, the organizations will join together to support, highlight, and honor a young Israeli based artist who was not born in Israel, exploring the role of various cultures and perspectives in creating an authentic Israeli creative voice.
The award celebrates and supports the artist’s potential for substantive international success in his/her future artistic career. Many of Israel’s most promising artists have the necessary talent but lack the resources to move their careers to the next level, especially on the international art stage. The Young International Artist Award includes a grant towards original work in a nonprofit public showing; local and international PR and marketing assistance; and exposure in the young international arts community in Israel.
“See, God has called by name Bezalel...and filled him with the spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, and with knowledge in all work. And God instilled in him thoughts in order for him to make designs of all kinds."
