Additional Information: On Tuesday, October 30th at 5pm in the Mabel Smith Douglass Room, Douglass Library, there will be a reception in honor of Brodsky followed by an artist’s lecture from 5:30 to 7 p.m. that will include a discussion on the relationship between art and science with her daughter, molecular biologist Frances M. Brodsky, director of biosciences at University College London. Dr. Brodsky previously was a professor at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). With over 100 scientific papers to her credit, she has also written a series of mystery novels with a scientific theme. Judith K. Brodsky, distinguished professor emerita in the Department of Visual Arts at Mason Gross School of the Arts, was named 2018–2019 Estelle Lebowitz Endowed Visiting Artist by the Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities (CWAH). She works with a contemporary iconography, one that is often ironic and sometimes humorous, reflecting the intellectual, political, and social issues of the present world. She is known for her etchings and lithographs, and her work is in many permanent collections worldwide including the New Jersey State Museum, Harvard University Museums, Library of Congress, Victoria & Albert, London, and Stadtsmuseum, Berlin. The exhibit is curated by art historian, curator, women’s studies scholar, and librarian Dr. Ferris Olin, who also holds the title distinguished professor emerita at Rutgers University. To accompany the exhibition, CWAH will publish a comprehensive online catalog in 2019 with an essay by the curator.
