The History of Ein Hod Artists Colony

On the village’s land, there was originally an Arab Palestinian village from which its inhabitants fled during the War of Independence. After the war, the lands and houses were expropriated, and some Arab residents established a nearby village of the same name – Ein Hud.



In 1953, a group of artists settled in the houses. The village was defined as a settlement for practitioners in all fields of art: visual arts, music, literature, and theater. The village has a lovely café, an art gallery presenting most of the colony’s community artworks, and a museum devoted to Marcel Janco and the Dadaism art movement. The amphitheater hosts bands, artist evenings, and shows in the summer months. In the center of the village, the restaurant, which completes the picture as a meeting place.



The Ein Hod Artists’ Gallery

The Ein Hod Artists’ Gallery presents the works of all the members of the village who were accepted as members. Contemporary art of painting and sculpture and the craft of thought is presented. In addition, works on paper, photography, ceramics, silver and gold jewelry, glass, and metal design are only a part of one of the country’s largest collections of Israeli art.
