Brett Barry, a lecturer in the SUNY New Paltz Digital Media and Journalism (DMJ) department, has produced an episode for the Kaatscast podcast about the Samuel Dorsky Museum’s new exhibit. The installation focuses on Polish dissident artist Jan Sawka, who is former DMJ lecturer Hanna Sawka’s father. The artist’s work illuminates both his personal interest in human consciousness and memory as well as how people pass through places. At the opening reception for the temporary gallery, Barry interviewed both Hanna and her mother, in addition to Prof. Gregory Bray about the artwork. Jan Sawka: The Place of Memory (The Memory of Place) is on display until Nov. 22 in the Morgan Anderson Gallery as part of the Samuel Dorsky Museum. Admission is a $5 suggested donation, students are free and the gallery is open for limited visitors with required face masks Wednesday through Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
