SEA CLIFF SCULPTOR DAVID JACOBS' SIGHT AND SOUND OFFERS A MULTISENSORY EXPERIENCE
February 10, 2014 -- This past Saturday afternoon, the Hoftsra University Museum hosted an opening reception for Sea Cliff artist David Jacobs' exhibition "Sight and Sound."
This singular exhibition created by Karen T. Albert, Associate Director of Exhibitions and Collections for the Hofstra University Museum, highlights selected works from Mr. Jacobs prolific career. Multiple aspects of his artistic directions and sensibilities are conveyed through the sculpture on view, which date from 1959-1987.
During the 1960s and 70s, Mr. Jacobs created his "Wah Wah" sculptures, a series of kinetic works that combine metal elements and rubber tubing. Included in the Hofstra exhibition is Sound Columns Environment (1970-73), an example from this series, in which air, programmed and controlled, is pumped through the works creating sound, movement and vibrations experienced by the viewer.
Since 1961, Mr. Jacobs' works have been displayed and experienced in both solo and group exhibitions across the United States and in Canada, including Inflatable Scupture at the Jewish Museum in New York in 1969 and Sound Sculpture at the Vancouver Art gallery in 1973. In 1962, he joined the faculty of Hofstra University, where he taught sculpture until 1995.
"Sight and Sound" will be on exhibit at the Hofstra University Museum through April 27.
