Museum on the Seam in the New York Times

It's good to see that Raphie Etgar's Museum on the Seam in Jerusalem (I was in the Bare Life show there, & have a piece in the permanent collection) has been featured in the New York Times. It was in an article in the Travel section, entitled "Where Art Thou: Twenty-Nine Places that will Open Your Eyes and Blow Your Mind". The museum was number 5 on the list, in the online part anyway.

The Museum on the Seam a couple of years ago. The museum is dedicated to political art.

Here's the link:


Kudos to Raphie.

You'll need Flash & javascript installed. MOTS is number 5 in the small thumbnail icons at the bottom of the screen. The other places look pretty cool, too.

Postscript: BTW, the painting of mine in the Museum on the Seam's collection is this one:

Hiroshima Ground Zero, 2004, acrylic on board, 12" x 9".

It was based on this drawing:

Hiroshima Ground Zero, 2001, pen & ink on paper, 7.3" x 6.4". It was published in the NY Times on the Op-Ed page, as you can see from the header, on August 6, 2001, on the anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing. So, from the NY Times to the Museum on the Seam to the NY Times again. So, that loop in the time-space continuum has been completed for me, and we move on...
