“In Deep Water,” an art installation by Jane Ingram Allen and Jami Taback, is now on public display in the lobby of Rowan University’s new Discovery Hall, home of the School of Earth and Environment.  The installation focused on water and the climate crisis consists of 6 long panels each about 25-30 feet long hanging in front of a wall of windows and visible from inside and outside the building.  Other smaller “In Deep Water” panels are also displayed in windows near the Dean’s office and Conference Room in Discovery Hall.  This collaborative artwork by Allen and Taback incorporates hand papermaking and printmaking, and the transparent sheets of handmade paper are embellished with printmaking and joined with threads.  For more information about the work of Allen and Taback, visit these sites:  https://janeingramallen.wordpress.com and https://www.jamitaback.com
