The Ein Hod Sculpture Biennale was conceived and produced in 1990, by the artist Roni Ben-Zvi. Born in Jaffa, Ben Zvi has been living and creating in the artist village ever since 1953.
The Biennale was established in order to promote outdoor exhibitions of contemporary sculptures by artists working world wide in all disciplines of visual art. 180 artists have participated in four Biennales, and over a quarter of million people have visited the site during four biennales.
Each Biennale presented the sculptures of both Israeli and international artists. Some of the best artists in Israel participated in the Biennale, their works already presented in museum and leading galleries world wide. For others, “The Ein Hod Sculpture Biennale” was a stepping stone to international exhibitions of their work and world acclaim.
The Sculpture Biennale Association is an unprofitable organization, supported by the Ministry of Education and Science and by the Ministry of Tourism. The Association is also supported by private organizations, which received appropriate coverage and publicity of their sponsorship. The Ein Hod Sculpture Biennale Association is currently seeking sponsors in its effort to once again produce this major successful project, which has won local and international acclaim.
