Israeli museums move artworks amid rocket attacks

Israeli museum and galleries are taking measures to protect art work from damage during the recent upsurge in fighting between Israel and Palestine, reports AP. On Friday, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art moved nearly 200 works into a rocket-proof safe the size of an auditorium. 'Even if there's a very small possibility (of damage), we don't play around. We don't take chances,' said Doron J. Lurie, the institution's senior curator and chief conservator told the news agency. 'We've guarded them like our own kids.' Likewise the Ashdod Art Museum - Monart Center, close to Gaza, moved fifteen works by contemporary Israeli artist Tsibi Geva to a vault four floors underground designed to withstand rocket fire and biological weapons.
