Select prints from the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibition are available for purchase as part of the Contemporary Israeli Photography show. Throughout the six-month exhibition, new imagery will periodically replace works currently on view. The back wall of the gallery will display works by other Ordover Gallery artists.

Admission to The Ordover Gallery is included in general Museum admission (however, tickets to the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibition are not). All artwork in The Ordover Gallery is for sale; a substantial portion of proceeds will benefit the Museum.
