Art lovers and philatelists converged on exhibition halls as a national show of paintings and sculpture opened today simultaneously with a national stamp exhibition. The art exhibition at the Israel Museum here and at museums in other cities all over the country was organized by the Public Committee for Art and Culture. The stamp show, unveiled at the Convention Center, contains collections never before displayed. The themes cover Jerusalem from Turkish times to the present and Jewish history.
