The Tel Aviv Museum of Arts is Tel Aviv’s largest museum. Established in 1932, this museum contains an inclusive collection of contemporary and classical art, a youth wing, and a sculpture garden. The museum houses both permanent and temporary collections. Tel Aviv Museum of Arts’ permanent collection contains some of the most popular artists and art movements from the first half of the twentieth century including German Expressionism, Futurism, Surrealism, Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, and Cubism. Visitors, when they walk into the entrance foyer, will notice a Roy Lichtenstein original that was created just for this museum. Other notable collections include the Peggy Guggenheim Collection which showcases the work of Pollock and Baziotes. Temporary exhibitions display the work of individual artists and group shows.
