David Jacobs: Sight and Sound
This is the opening day for Hofstra University Musem's singular exhibition: David Jacobs: Sight and Sound, which runs until April 27. Curated by Karen T. Albert, the HUM’s associate director of exhibitions and collections, this exhibition highlights selected works from the prolific career of the esteemed contemporary Long Island-based artist David Jacobs. Multiple aspects of his artistic endeavors are conveyed through the sculpture on view, which date from 1959 to 1987. Featured is his Sound Columns Environment, part of his famous Wah Wah series, work that exemplifies his use of nontraditional materials to create a dynamic aesthetic. These large-scale sculptures use principles of physics and engineering to create sound with air. The artist wants viewers to actively participate with his works by immersing themselves in the sensory experiences he creates.
Additional exhibition funding has been provided by New York Community Bank Foundation.
