We are delighted that you have visited our BFAMI Gala 2021 website.
BFAMI 2021 has something for everyone, a truly different and inspiring event, super prize raffle draw, emerging artist photography sale and a one piece auction from our Guest of Honour, Thomas Struth.
A huge thanks to everyone who has been a part of putting BFAMI Gala 2021 together. It has been a immense task but we are so proud that we can once again showcase what BFAMI does best – bringing the art world to you whilst supporting the art museums across Israel.
It has been a hard time for all of us but the arts community has been hit especially hard. Across the world, museum and gallery doors have been closed and Israeli museums are no different. The museums are the lifeblood of the cultural backdrop of Israel; they are a safe space for those families and individuals who are struggling; they offer support, help and advice to aspiring artists and to those that need social interaction and programming for their mental health and well being.
Our online event at 6pm GMT on the 24th February will be a true celebration of art from around the world. We will be visiting private collections in Palm Beach and Tel Aviv as well as hearing from our fabulous BFAMI Gala 2021. It is a great line up and I do hope that you will be able to join us.
Sending you warm wishes and good health
Pamela Crystal and Poju Zabludowicz
