Order & Chaos: An Exhibit of Selected Works by Jacob Landau

Apr 11-17

Order & Chaos: An Exhibit of Selected Works by Jacob Landau 

Monmouth University Library - 10 AM

And it is a powerful weapon. For “each time we create something,” Landau has said, “we win a victory over decay.” Monmouth University’s exhibit “Order & Chaos” demonstrates this triumph. The exhibition features a selection of fifteen pieces. All works are from Monmouth University’s extensive collection of Jacob Landau’s work, comprising over 300 prints, drawings and paintings.
