Museum on the beach

This is a great initiative by the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in collaboration with the Municipality of Tel Aviv-Yafo and Atarim to bring reproductions of selective works of art into the public space.  In this case, nine works of art which are currently on display at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art are reproduced at regular intervals along the promenade of Bograshov beach.  Whilst  it is unusual to see reproductions of life-size paintings at the beach, it is such an excellent idea.  It is an opportunity to bring art to the people of Tel Aviv, residents and tourists alike in the hope that it will educate and inspire them to visit the Tel Aviv Museum of Art to see the originals of these paintings and to enjoy many other paintings, sculptures and exhibitions.
