Friends of Bezalel
The goal of “Friends of Bezalel” association is to support the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem
Based in New York City, Friends of Bezalel’s primary mission is to support the Academy through fundraisers, events, and social media.
Friends of Bezalel annual Gala is the main fundraising event for Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design. Each year about 500 from the New York social and art world are attending this luxurious event.
Gala 2021 – For the 6th year in a row, we designed the look and feel for the annual fundraiser of Friends of Bezalel in NY. This year we had to take an unconventional approach since there was no annual live event. only an online campaign. For. the annual campaign we took all the fun staple marks from the recent gala and make them part of the celebration. we designed a special website for the campaign. We also designed tote bags, wrapping paper, mailers, and more, all by using works from Bezalel graduates of 2020.
Gala 2020 – This year Friends of Bezalel in NY celebrated their annual Gala in a unique and special way. Through a week-long event that took place all around the city, from Times Square to Downtown we showed the connection between art and nature. The gala itself honored the Video program at the Screen-Based art Department and in collaboration with them, we created an evening that reflects the bond between art and nature. We designed all the look and feel for the gala night including the invitations, special wrapping paper, slides for the main program, printed program and more. we also design the catalogs and logos for the following two exhibits that happened that week.
