For three decades, Yankel Ginzburg's works have been exhibited the world over. His works have graced the walls of the Bat-Yam Museum, Marc Chagall Museum, Scirball Museum, The Modern Museum of Art-Mexico, and the Cairo Museum. In Washington, he had his American debut at the Washington Gallery of Art. Whether it is from Los Angeles to New York, London to Paris, Cairo to Moscow, or Tokyo to Hong Kong, Yankel Ginzburg's art is well known and admired by critics and art lovers alike.
His murals, large tapestries and sculptures are so unique that they are often commissioned for government buildings and association headquarters. In Washington, D.C., there are numerous places in which to view these notable works. His mural, "A Hope Fulfilled is a Source of Life," is on permanent exhibit at the Klutznick Museum of B'nai B'rith International.
He also designed a 12' x 17' floor-to-ceiling tapestry, "Freedom Road," which hangs in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. This art form was executed by one hundred and fifty needlepoint artisans and dedicated to the museum as a symbol of the Jewish people's plight for freedom.
Amongst many of his other major commissions in the U.S., one stands out. Located in Tampa, Florida, this monumental sculpture, "The Invisible Hand," is an interpretive dimensional sculpture that dramatizes the words: "Creativity is the product of the invisible hand." It is a static version of the amorphous forms that blend the illusion and sense of rhythm and movement so often reflected in his paintings.
Internationally, Yankel Ginzburg's monumental works are well known and often sought after. His latest monumental piece was commissioned by President Boris Yeltsin of the Russian Federation. This monumental sculpture/park adjoins the Russian White House, and is to commemorate the August 1991 Democratic Revolution.
While some of Ginzburg's monumental pieces of art are for pure pleasure, some are to invoke intense thought and human emotion. One of his most exciting public projects, currently under production, is one such piece of art. The work embodies an SS-20 Soviet missile, a symbol of war and destruction, and transforms it into an object of love and peace; a subject to which Ginzburg devotes his life.
