Artist Jay Bolotin's unique work on display in campus museum

A preface to the story of Adam and Eve is explored in artist Jay Bolotin's multiwork and multimedia exhibition, "The Jackleg Testament Continues," which is currently on display in the Joel and Lila Harnett Museum of Art, located in the Modlin Center for the Arts. "I always found the story strange because I never understood what Eve did wrong," Bolotin said. In Bolotin's version of the story, "Jack" is embodied by a jack-in-the-box toy and plays the role of Adam. After breaking free from a Godlike figure known as "Nobodaddy," Jack represents the serpent in the tree and gives Eve a violin.
