  • An intriguing new exhibition titled “PLAN(e)T,” which marries scientific research with art to unravel the beauty, sophistication, cultural significance and human exploitation of plants, opened last week at Tel Aviv’s Genia Schreiber University Art Gallery.
  • As part of Fallen Fruit, Burns and Young mapped fruit trees in several Tel Aviv neighborhoods — navigation maps are available at the gallery.
  • From springtime on, the gallery’s sculpture garden will present a reconstruction of King Herod’s royal garden in Caesarea, on Israel’s northern coast, planned by De Vries and based on the research of Dr. Dafna Langgut, head of the university’s Laboratory of Archaeobotany and Ancient Environments at the Institute of Archaeology.
