Professor Brodsky has mentored many artists over the years. Currently, she is the co-director of the Rutgers University Institute for Women and Art and is planning “The Fertile Crescent: Gender, Art, and Society,” a showcase for women artists, film makers, composers, and writers from the Middle East.
