Neuberger Museum of Art
This exhibition highlights work by two women who carve stone in distinctive
manners. Harriet Feigenbaum presents This is Not a Ruin, It's a Theater, dedicated
to the ancient and on-going conflicts in the Middle East. Set as a dramatic arena, the
work personifies a continuing theater of war. Her limestone contains fossils and
shells to further emphasize historical and archeological connections.
incredibly detailed work displays her whimsical sense of humor displayed via her tour
de force ability to depict reality. For this exhibition, she has chosen to present a room
of marble, complete with family photographs, cocktail table, chair and doorway all
delicately carved in detail from stone. Curated by Judy Collischan, Ph.D., Neuberger
Museum of Art Associate Director for Curatorial Affairs. Funded, in part, by the
Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art and the Westchester Arts Council.
