The first group of young artists, actors, writers and musicians to found a “Colony of the Arts” la Israel is now being formed here, it was announced today by the Artists Group.

The group, which already has some 20 members, plans to start communal life in the United States prior to leaving for Israel. When they arrive, the artists will export themselves at various agricultural pursuits, but will also devote considerable time to their respective creative skills which they hope will develop more fully in a communal society. The group’s headquarters is at the New York offices of the Hechalutz.
