The Tel Aviv Museum of Art which has been established in the house previously occupied by Mr. Mayer Dizengoff, the Mayor of Tel Aviv, which he has presented for the purpose as a memorial to his wife, who died recently, was opened this evening in the presence of a number of Government officials and the Foreign Consuls in Palestine.

The District Commissioner, who performed the opening ceremony, praised Tel Aviv in his speech for the great work it was doing in establishing itself as the centre of culture and art in that part of the world.

Mr. Mayer Dizengoff, who responded, paid a warm tribute in his speech to the memory of the late Professor Boris Shatz, the founder of the Bezalel School of Art in Jerusalem, who died last week in America.
