'After Sept. 11' exhibition planned at Bernstein Gallery, Sept. 9-Dec. 1
Posted August 29, 2002; 04:18 p.m.
"After Sept. 11," an exhibition that explores how the work of 12 regional artists has been influenced by the tragic events of one year ago, will open Monday, Sept. 9, at the newly renovated Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs' Bernstein Gallery on the lower level of Robertson Hall .
The public is invited to an opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13. The exhibition runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays through Dec. 1.
Robertson, including the gallery space, has been undergoing significant renovations over the past year. The Bernstein Gallery originally was dedicated in 1990 as a memorial to former Woodrow Wilson School Dean Marver Bernstein and his wife, Sheva.
It is intended as a showcase for art reflecting the mission of the Woodrow Wilson School. "At the Woodrow Wilson School, we encourage our students to take an interdisciplinary approach to solving public policy problems," said Associate Dean Karen Jezierny, who has spearheaded the effort to make the gallery a place where art and public policy coexist. "Incorporating the visual arts into the students' academic experience serves to further broaden their outlook."
