Illuminated Streets 

 The AJU, Familian Campus is proud to be one of three mural sites in Los Angeles!

Illuminated Street Mural Painting on AJU Campus Starting Monday, March 16

AJU’s Institute for Jewish Creativity is a proud partner of Illuminated Streets. This project seeks to advance a Jewish contribution via the LA street art scene, build ties between LA and Israel and allow the opportunity for expressing Jewish identity through an unlikely media. Illuminated Streets brings together Itamar Paloge a.k.a Faluja and Hillel Smith, artists from Tel Aviv and LA respectively, to create collaborative murals in each city. 

Artist Talk

Wednesday March 18, 12:15-1:00pm, in the Berg Cafeteria

Artists Itamar Paloge and Hillel Smith join us to discuss the project and their artistic trajectories.


Artists Painting the Mural on Campus
Monday, March 16-Thursday, March 19 10am-4pm
Observe the two artists painting the 30’ mural on the wall of the AJU Conference Center!


Both artists utilize the Hebrew alphabet as a design element in creating work that is rooted in a rich tradition of Jewish typographic art. Both work with spray paint and other

“counterculture” media that appeal to young people outside traditional art channels. The unusual juxtaposition of Jewish tradition and these contemporary media is thought-provoking, and, we

hope, compelling to those in both the Jewish and creative communities.


Not going to make it to their talk at AJU? Check them out at the Conney Conference at USC March 24-26. 


The project is made possible through grants from Asylum Arts, and from the NextGen Engagement Initiative of The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles.
