Agam fountain ‘evacuated’ from Dizengoff Square

While half the nation’s eyes were turned to Amona and the impending dismantling of the outpost there, Tel Aviv was being transformed with its own evacuation — of an iconic piece of urban art.

City workers have begun taking apart Yaakov Agam’s famous fountain, which has graced the city’s Dizengoff Square for decades.
