The Lola Beer Ebner Sculpture Garden in Memory of Dolfi Ebner

The Lola Beer Ebner Sculpture Garden in Memory of Dolfi Ebner includes major landmarks in the development of modern and contemporary sculpture and serves as a setting for temporary exhibitions of outdoor sculpture. Sculptures by Calder, Maillol, Lipchitz, Caro and Graham, as well as prominent Israeli artists such as Ullman, Kadishman, Berg and Cohen-Levi are showcased. The exhibition adds to the visitor’s experience the dialectics of open versus closed, inside versus outside, nature versus culture, through the artists’ own treatments of these opposites. By connecting the lower and upper levels of the garden, Cucchi’s commissioned mosaic particularly enhances this approach.
