Tel Aviv is taking a weekend to showcase its art and artists with “Love Art, Make Art” event, September 8-10.

Dozens of activities, tours, conversations and workshops will be held throughout the city, with 150 artists opening their studios, along with 30 galleries and four museums offering free entry for the 20th anniversary of the event.

The main offerings of “Love Art, Make Art” will be in Yad Eliyahu, with activities revolving around the biblical Elijah the prophet as well as Haganah leader Eliyahu Golomb, for whom the southeastern Tel Aviv neighborhood was named.

The area is known for the Menora Mivtachim Arena, home to the Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team, but it’s also been drawing younger residents, making it a focal point of art and creation, said Mayor Ron Huldai in a statement about the art event.

The Yad Eliyahu area will be a hub for “Love Art, Make Art,” with artists creating works of sculpture, drawing, photography, sound, video, text and performance art, part of a live, art-filled conversation held with the public throughout the weekend.

Other neighborhoods and spaces are part of “Love Art, Make Art,” including video art displays in the Suzanne Dellal Center, a new artwork on the wall of City Hall, a nighttime zombie tour at the Beit Tepper MuZeuM, musical meetups, and an entire list of events available on the municipality website.
