Free Art Exhibition of Artist Jens Brasch at Lewis University

Published: August 24, 2020.

Lewis University will host an art exhibition by artist Jens Brasch “Folk, Malefactor, Pronouns”. The show will be on display from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. daily and runs from Aug. 31-Sept. 18 in the Brent and Jean Wadsworth Family Gallery, located on Lewis University’s main campus in Romeoville.

While free and open to the public, face coverings are required to enter the gallery, and maintaining social distancing is also required.

This exhibit consists of three bodies work by artist Jens Brasch, who explained, "The definition of art remains a philosophical problem. Works of art are always about something. They have meaning and content. My work makes this explicit. Malefactor is a reflection on the extreme awfulness of maleness. The folk piece is about the reliability or unreliability of memory. The pronoun piece makes meaning and its oppositional physical.”

The Art Gallery is part of the Oremus Fine Arts Center at Lewis University. The Department of Art and Design manages the gallery, which includes Lewis University student shows, local and regional artist shows, annual high school exhibits, faculty shows, academic-based exhibitions and cultural and religious-based art shows. More information about the Art Gallery and exhibits is available by contacting Natalie Swain, Art Gallery coordinator, at
