Become a Friend

The friends are ambassadors of the Museum and of Israeli art both within the country and abroad. They enjoy exclusive activities that take them behind the scenes of the art world

Friends of TAMA In Israel

Chairperson: Rachel Yanai

The Friends of Tel Aviv Museum of Art is a framework for the active involvement of art lovers who are interested in maintaining close ties with the Museum and its range of programs. Israeli Friends of TAMA enjoy the Museum’s exhibitions and events throughout the year, and are also invited to exclusive events. They become part of the Museum's community of supporters around the world, and participate in international circles of art lovers.

In recent years, Friends of TAMA’s contributions have enabled the Museum to put on flagship exhibitions, such as “Modern Times: Masterpieces from the Philadelphia Museum of Art,” “Louise Bourgeois,” “Hiroshi Sugimoto,” “Vic Muniz” and others.

You can join the Friends by choosing one of several tracks, and enjoy a variety of attendant benefits, as listed below.
