Bezalel Arts Fair
Every Friday, dozens of artists display their wares at the Bezalel Arts Fair. The fair takes place every Friday in the city center from 9:00-15:00 in the winter months, and 10:00-16:00 in the summer months. The fair, which is spread between the Schatz pedestrian mall, Bezalel St. and the Schieber Park opposite the Hamashbir department store, is an arts, culture, and social fair meant to give a chance for artists and social groups to show their work and have direct contact with the public. The fair began in the fall of 2009, and quickly expanded and gained itself a steady and ever growing crowd of visitors, as well as built up a tight knit community of artists, and quickly turned into a new Jerusalem tradition, full of life. The colorful fair displays a wide variety of hand made items including textiles, wood, glass, drawings, metals, photography, design. Music and and street performers can often be found at the fair as well. In addition, social awareness groups set up booths to explain their work and recruit volunteers. Every Friday on Shatz Street, the work of a different Jerusalemite artist will be featured. A large recycling station is planned for the site and will be installed in the near future. The fair is an initiative of Minhal Kehilati Lev Hair in cooperation with the Art and Culture branch of the Jerusalem Municipality.
