UVM Hillel Presents 'Artists 4 Israel' April 16

On Tuesday, April 16 in commemoration of Yom Ha’atzmaut — Israeli Independence Day — UVM Hillel presents Artists 4 Israel. Four Artists will be spending a day on the UVM campus performing live interactive art meant to encourage an open dialogue about Israel.

The all-day event beginning at noon outside the Davis Center will include interactive live graffiti on a 24 feet by eight feet wall, music, $1 falafel, celebratory fun and an ongoing dialogue about Israel, history, culture and politics.

 Artists 4 Israel is a community of creative individuals working together in an ongoing, collaborative project expressing Israel’s right to exist in peace and security. UVM Hillel's mission is to enrich the lives of Jewish undergraduate and graduate students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world. Hillel student leaders, professionals and lay leaders are dedicated to creating a pluralistic, welcoming and inclusive environment for Jewish and non-Jewish college students alike, where they are encouraged to grow intellectually, spiritually and socially.

This event is cosponsored by the Israel on Campus Coalition, the Avi Chai Foundation, Stand With Us, AEpi Fraternity and Vermont Students for Israel.
