Renowned Local Artist and Rutgers Professor Judith Brodsky to Speak at MCCC April 17


West Windsor, NJ:  Rutgers University Art Professor Judith Brodsky will discuss the contemporary art world at Mercer County Community College on Tuesday, April 17, at noon in the Communications Building, Room 110.  The talk, entitled, “My Life in Art,” is the fourth in the college's Spring 2012 Distinguished Lecture Series, and will be held at the college’s West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. 

Professor Brodsky is an artist, printmaker and arts advocate.  In her talk, she will draw from her own experience as an artist as well as from her projects as a curator and activist.

Brodsky is a Professor Emerita in the Department of Visual Arts at Rutgers, and formerly served as dean and associate provost.  She is also the founder of the Brodsky Center for Innovative Editions at Rutgers.  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.  The showcase will take place this fall in Princeton and New Brunswick. 

Professor Brodsky earned her bachelor’s degree in art history from Harvard University, and a master’s in fine arts from Tyler School of Art at Temple University.  Her work is in the permanent collections of over 100 museums and corporations.  She works with an early 21st century iconography, reflecting the intellectual, political, and social issues of our time as filtered through her own individuality.  Her images of the environment, women, and family become metaphors for her feelings about life, decay, death, and possible salvation.
