Ticho House: From Historical Home to Contemporary Gallery

Hosted By: The Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University

The story of the artist Anna Ticho and her husband, Dr. Abraham Ticho, is a love story: their love for each other, and their love for Jerusalem – its people and its landscapes; her love of art and creation, and his dedication to the patients he cared for in his medical clinic. From the 1920s – 1970s, their home was the unofficial cultural center and “salon” of Jerusalem’s artistic and intellectual communities. When Anna died in 1980, she bequeathed the home to the Israel Museum. Join us as Timna Seligman, curator of Ticho House since 2009, takes us through the arched doorway of Ticho House. We will meet the people who lived there, and see how the house changed and developed from ophthalmological hospital to art museum. We will learn about Anna’s artwork and her influence as a female artist at a time when there were few recognized women artists.

This lecture is offered in partnership with the Cleveland Israel Arts Connection program of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland.
