Artist in Residence

Shirel Horovitz, Israeli Artist in Residence

In the month of February 2020, we welcomed Israeli artist Shirel Horovitz to the J to offer free art workshops and lectures. This was made possible with the support of the Israel Engagement Innovation grant from the JCCA and in partnership with key community partners.

About Shirel Horovitz

Using drawing, sculpting, video and sound, Tel Aviv based artist Shirel Horovitz, creates installations and performances exploring cities, communities and the relations between people and space. She earned her BFA from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem and her MA (with distinction) from the Interdisciplinary Art program in Tel Aviv University. Shirel exhibited in major galleries, museums and art festivals in Israel and across the US.

Alongside her art practice, Shirel lectures, leads art tours, teaches art and is an art consultant to a variety of private groups and institutions.

Durham Arts Council Installation

The installation of “The Right Angle, the Meander, and the Star”, featuring art created in the art workshops, was on display at the Durham Arts Council in the Seamans Gallery.


We hope to host another Israeli Artist in Residence in 2022. If you are interested in underwriting this experience, please contact Jill.
