Ben Uri: Sharing and celebrating our cultural heritage with the world.
Ben Uri is the London Jewish Museum of Art and will celebrate a remarkable centenary in 2015.
The museum fulfils a unique and distinctive role and proudly represents the Jewish community across not just Great Britain’s mainstream museum and art gallery sector but also internationally.
Today Ben Uri is a dedicated international museum whose Education programmes have been selected to be part of the National Education Network. Our school learning modules about the 1400 strong Ben Uri collection is available to over 8 million children across 25,000 schools in the UK. No other Jewish organisation has achieved this.
Our exhibitions tour the country from Edinburgh to Portsmouth and from Jerusalem to New York. Our scholarly 200 page catalogues, are distributed internationally and bring great public credit to the London Jewish community.
Our 1400 strong collection is world renowned and you probably are most aware of the global publicity generated on our discovery of the now world famous lost Chagall ‘Apocalypse en Lilas’ – the Jewish crucifixion in honour and memorial to the Holocaust. This masterpiece will be exhibited in New York in 2013 and San Francisco in 2014.
Ben Uri is pioneering ‘Art as Therapy’ working with homes for the elderly and young where such programmes will be of positive help.
We receive no public funding and rely on Legacies, Patrons, Grants and Commercial Sponsorship. We do not sell art.
Your support will leave your own special mark and is greatly needed. Please compare our wonderful contribution against other’s before you decide. Thank you.
