Multiple Exposures: Jewelry and Photography 
is the first museum exhibition to explore how contemporary jewelry artists transform and add new meaning to the pervasive images of this digital age.  Drawing inspiration from historic daguerreotypes to manipulated digital images, international jewelry artists explore changing views of beauty and the human body; examine social, political, and cultural issues; probe perceptions of memory and desire; and question the broader relation of jewelry to society and personal identity, issues central to the contemporary experience. 

 Janet will be speaking on Tuesday in NYC:

 Obama in Mali                                                                                          
  When I arrived in Mali in May 2009, I saw images of  Obama  
  everywhere -  stuck on cars and motorcycles,  painted on stores,    
  printed on t-shirts and fabric.I also saw images of American flags    
  in these same places either along side images of Obama or on     
  their own. I enjoyed the variety of images, the context and the 
  juxtapositions.  Obama was often depicted along side other  
  popular icons. This book documents what I found in 2009 and 2010.
