  • Grant Summary:

    The Florence Griswold Museum presents an exhibition of the work of emerging Connecticut artist, Jac Lahav. The Great Americans explores the ideas of who we consider ?great? and the cultural underpinnings of our perceptions (whether fact or fiction). Through his cheeky, psychologically complex treatment of iconic figures, Lahav explores the multifaceted nature of cultural identity, calling into question the very notion of ?greatness? among American historical figures and exploring the concept of fame itself (on view Feb. 9-May 12, 2019).
