Morry Rubin Gallery at the Art of Collecting
Founded in 1973 by Michael McHenry, the Morry Rubin Gallery has become a premier venue for the exhibition and sale of contemporary art. The collection includes works by a number of Israeli artists. It also includes unique public programs such as lectures and book signings.
Collection of Contemporary Israeli Artists
Among the most renowned art galleries in New York, Morry Rubin Gallery specializes in presenting works by contemporary Israeli artists and craftsmen. Aside from exhibiting the works of the artists, the gallery also provides a number of educational programs and public events.
The Morry Rubin Gallery is owned by Michael McHenry, who was born in Zurich, Switzerland. After attending the University of Essex in England, he moved to New York City. Initially, he wanted to be a lawyer, but he realized that his passion was art. In the early 1980s, he began to collect contemporary artists, and then opened his own art gallery in New York. His interest in the arts was so strong that he eventually became part owner of several publicly traded companies.
Important Collections Worldwide
Morry Rubin is a talented filmmaker, musician, and art dealer. He is also a prominent member of the Israeli arts community. His works have been exhibited in important collections worldwide. Rubin’s artistic style is very abstract. His works often take on historical themes. His work has been recognized by the Jewish National Fund and the Dizengoff Prize.
Lectures & Book Signings
During the summer quarter of 2016, the Morry Rubin Gallery, located at The Art of Collecting in Denver, hosted lectures and book signings in conjunction with the Rubin and Gloria Feldman Family Education Institute. These lectures and book signings were designed to demonstrate how collecting is done.
Jews and Modernity
In addition to the lectures and book signings, there was a small museum of artifacts that spanned the centuries. The exhibition titled “Transformation: Jews and Modernity” contained works of art created by Jewish artists during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
Exhibition of Architecture & Campus
There is also an exhibition of architecture and campus planning at America’s First University. This exhibit is a good example of the state of the art in campus design.
