Ilana Goor is a multidisciplinary artist who resides between Jaffa, Israel and New York. Born in Tiberius in 1936 into a prominent family of physicians and artists, she pursued art from a young age. Her grandfather, Dr. Yosef Sapir, has been described as a cofounder of the Bezalel School of Art in Jerusalem where Goor studied from 1955-56 and served as her only formal place of artistic study. After moving to Los Angeles, she began sculpting in the 1960s, which led to a solo show at the Los Angeles State Museum, and then to exhibitions worldwide. Her sculptures are installed throughout Israel including at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. She is also an acclaimed furniture, jewelry, and accessories designer as well as a renowned collector. In 1995, the Ilana Goor Museum opened in Jaffa, which displays her artwork and her amassed international art and artifacts collection.
