This publication highlights the artist's major public projects in the Unites States, Israel, Germany, India, Switzerland and Canada.”

The Open Museums are situated in the Tefen, Tel-Hai and Omer industrial parks because Stef Wertheimer, the founder, realized that providing a creative environment for industrial research and marketing encouraged innovation and progress, and stimulating the cultural sector was good for all of Israel.
