Who said Tel Aviv was a city without culture? As part of the artistic events opening the city's 100th birthday celebrations, Tel Aviv is putting on an exhibition honoring famous Jews from the polished city of Vienna, reports www.local.co.il. The exhibition, titled "Vienna in Tel Aviv," will see the silhouettes of renowned Viennese Jews who lived in the 19th and 20th centuries lining the colonnade at the Cameri Theater for several weeks. Among those being honored are Zionist founder Theodor Herzl, psychiatric pioneer Sigmund Freud, composer and conductor Gustav Mahler, playwright and author Arthur Schnitzler, philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein and composer Arnold Schoenberg. The exhibition will be open to the public from March 26 to April 9, but will be officially opened on April 2 in the presence of the current Mayor of Vienna, Michael Haupl, and other Viennese officials.
