A Sotheby's auctioneer conducts a fund-raiser at TAPAC.

major new performing
arts center, which will be
home to some of Israel's
leading dance and music
groups, recently opened its first
wing in Tel Aviv.
The Tel Aviv Performing Arts
Center (TAPAC) hosted a gala
evening for a new opera house,
featuring a performance of Boris
Gudonov conducted by Gary
Bertini.
When completed, the complex
also will include the New Israeli
Opera, the Cameri Theater, the
Batsheva Dance Company, the
Israel Ballet and the Israel Sym-
phony Orchestra of Rishon
Lezion.
The project was launched 10
years ago by Shlomo Lahat, then
mayor of Tel Aviv. His dream
was to create an arts center and
provide much-needed perfor-
mance space.
Located next to the Tel Aviv

Museum of Art, the center will
contain a 1,600-seat, state-of-the-
art opera house, two theaters
holding 350 and 800 seats, and
a 1,100-seat concert hall.
Among the recent events held
at the new TAPAC was an auc-
tion to raise funds for an educa-
tional center for the mentally
disabled. The event was orga-
nized by friends of AKIM, the
National Association for the
Mentally Handicapped.
Conducted by Sotheby's, the
auction featured clay masks dec-
orated by artists and leading fig-
ures from around the world. It
raised more than $750,000.
Among those who contributed
their talents to the masks: actors
Richard Gere and Robert de
Niro, artist Yaacov Agam, Prime
Minister Yitzhak Rabin and de-
signer Giorgio Armani.

Music Sounds
In The Forest

S

omeone passing by the
recently dedicated Jewish
National Fund play-
ground in the Ben She-
men Forest, on the road
between Jerusalem and Tel
Aviv, might be surprised at the
sounds emanating from it.
Along with the usual laugh-
ter, as children climb, jump,
slide and swing, the play-
ground's apparatus chime, ring
and jingle in a cacophany of
sounds. In addition, an under-
ground pipe-phone system,
consisting of colorful tubes, al-
lows children to converse
from opposite ends of the play-
ground.
Zipora Gendler, who has de-
signed a number of "playscape"
sculptures around the country,
in which she has incorporated

disciplines such as vision, sound,
light and wind, designed the
playground because children
identify with and enjoy sound
far more than words.
"I wanted to create an educa-
tional tool where children could
make noise and create sounds
while learning about sound.
Sound is a basic element of dai-
ly life and the playground allows
children to learn how sound is
created, transmitted, and
heard," she said.
The park was made possible
by an endowment from the lega-
cy of Morris Philip Arnold of
Brimsby, Great Britain, the son
of poor Russian immigrants.
Mr. Arnold, said his niece
Anita Segal, never married but
loved children. (WZPS)
