Recipients of the 2019 Ministry of Culture Award

Eleven Shenkar graduates and lecturers received the prestigious prize, which was awarded after a six-month delay, following the persistent efforts of the Association of Plastic Artists in Israel. The prizes were awarded following the Association’s efforts in recent months, and its repeated petitions and inquiries with Ministry of Culture officials on the matter. Thus, the Association protected these important public awards – the only ones in Israel awarded directly to artists, not through a mediating body.
