“The Game” has been on display in the official U.S. embassy residence in Tel Aviv, Israel as part of the Art in Embassies program for the past three years. Today I was excited to receive word that Ambassador Shapiro will be remaining in Tel Aviv through the end of the administration and he would love to keep the exhibition in place for the rest of his tenure, so “The Game” will remain in Tel Aviv for two more years!

Here’s an interesting article from 07/04/14 on this “Modern Family in the U.S. Ambassador’s Residence.” I especially like reading that “in June, the ambassador’s residence unknowingly broke a record, hosting five events and hundreds of people over a single week.” And “at no time of the year are they more public than at the ambassador’s annual Fourth of July party, when the “who’s who” of Israel – 2,000 guests – crowds into their home.” It is a great opportunity for my work to be viewed by the many guests to the Embassy residence — a unique audience for sure!
