The independent nonprofit organization Artis—created to raise awareness and understanding of contemporary visual art from Israel—announced today that it has received a $1,000,000 gift from an anonymous donor.

According to the organization’s news release, the donation will allow for a new Artis base in Tel Aviv as well as an expanded staff and an increased yearly budget, now totaling $1 million.

The gift will also enable the organization to expand it’s grant program to $250,000 a year, a substantial raise from it’s previous $100,000 annual allotment. As a result, the program will be split into four core sections: exhibition grants, project grants, travel & research grants, and a scholarship fund.
