As part of a large public-arts work, the area around the Mahaneh Yehuda market will be turned into a large sculpture garden on Wednesday when merchants from the shuk use materials from around the market to create pieces of art. The location-specific artwork is part of the “Tabula Rasa” initiative from the municipality to bring art into the area around the shuk.

The merchants will be creating artwork at 8 Mahaneh Yehuda Street around noon. Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat is also expected to visit the art installations.
