The Art @ Solel Committee was formed two years ago to manage the Temple's current art collection and to promote art as a community activity.

Art @ Solel is a committee dedicated to the preservation and advancement of art at Temple Solel.

  • An ongoing register of all art owned and/or on loan to the Temple is maintained by the committee. Documentation includes an illustration, history, donor(s), artist biography and estimated value.
  • Those works are maintained, prepared and displayed at various times within the Temple building, the objective of which is to provide our members with a pleasing and educational art environment. Printed folders and labeling document many of the works and displays.
  • Finally, the committee is involved in new art projects such as member shows, seasonal exhibitions, a sculpture garden and docent tours to enhance members' appreciation of the permanent and on-loan collection.
