Brandeis Alumni, Family and Friends

Alumni Art Gallery

In conjunction with Brandeis' 75th anniversary, the Brandeis Alumni Art Gallery opened in 2023 at the recently refurbished Wien Faculty Center. Sponsored by the Brandeis Alumni Association, the Office of the President, and the Division of Creative Arts, the exhibition features a different group of alumni artists every six months.

The current exhibit, entitled Connect40 features the works of two painters, Joel Janowitz ’67 and Jenna Weiss ’07, PB ’08. Each working from observation, but departing toward abstraction in divergent modes, their work speaks to each other in surprising ways. With this third exhibition at the Alumni Art Gallery, we invite you to celebrate the forty years that separate their time at Brandeis, and art’s remarkable ability to bridge it.

The exhibit can be viewed Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. when campus is open through September 15.
