Mayor of Tel Aviv
The Coaster Project exhibition was opened Sunday
at noon, the 28th April, at the Tel-Aviv Cinematec. It was installed
in the beautiful Gallery, dominating all the passages; to the conference
Halls, to the movies-theaters and the cafe-shop.In addition to the
exhibition's guests, many people arrived to the Spring Festival that
was going on, at the same time so it increased the public.
During the week many kids, from different schools
came for their educational activities, and they were genuinely interested
and curious about the variety of the art object. The give away day
was on Saturday evening 4th May. It was a big event. There were people
that came "prepared" as what their choice was, others were very curious,
surprised and happy to choose a coaster and learn about the project.
It was a very special evening and event that will be remembered.
All the major newspapers wrote articles about
the project (all of them in Hebrew, sorry). I'll send you photos from
the event. I am proud to be part of this wonderful project.
