Monday, January 14 – Friday, March 8, 2019
Opening Reception: Friday, January 25, 2019, 6:00-8:00 pm
The exhibition features a variety of artists and scientists making art informed by scientific principles. The show is an offshoot of the virtual symposium, “Strange Attractors,” which Taney Roniger organized in 2017 in collaboration with New York’s C.U.E. Art Foundation. The exhibition builds upon the questions and concepts stemming from the symposium on the current state of relations between art and science, and the growing trend towards collaboration between practitioners of these disciplines.

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Monsignor Francis R. Seymour, KHS who served for many years as the first Archivist for the Archdiocese of Newark when he was named to this position in 1969. He was also a founding member of the New Jersey Catholic Historical Commission in 1976 and became Chair of this organization in 2009. The contributions Monsignor Seymour made to the Monsignor William Noe’ Field Archives & Special Collections Center were many and memorable. Counted among his most important and lasting works include his careful organization of research files related to the priest community, collecting of important documentation from autographed photographs to memorial cards to parish histories and many other items and objects related to the story of Catholic New Jersey.
It was also in the personal sharing of his knowledge and recollections where he really brought history to life. His memory for details was remarkable and brought both enthusiasm and a gentle touch to his interactions with the many people he touched during the course of his life. On a personal level, Monsignor Seymour will be remembered fondly and missed greatly by the many individuals who and had the privilege to learn from his example and had the privilege to call him a colleague and friend.
Among those associated who treasure his kindness are Tiffany Burns, Assistant to the Dean of University Libraries who remembers “My first job on the SHU campus was as an employee with the Archdiocese of Newark. Monsignor Seymour hired me to process sacramental requests in Archives and Special Collections twice a week. During my time in the Archives my brother passed away suddenly. It was Monsignor who most comforted me with words of kindness and his gentle explanation of the Church’s teaching during the saddest days of my life. I always felt that when Monsignor Seymour entered the room he brought the Lord with him.”
Sarah Ponichtera, Assistant Dean of Special Collections and the Gallery, adds, “Monsignor Seymour was a font of knowledge about the history of the Archdiocese. He knew off the top of his head what would take an average researcher days to track down. His passing is an enormous loss for historians of the university, the Archdiocese, and the region.”
More information about the life and accomplishments of Monsignor Seymour can be found via the official announcement issued by the Archdiocese of Newark.
#SHU_Libraries Walsh Gallery Hosts China Federation of Literary and Art Circles
The China Federation of Literary and Art Circles, organized by Tri-Way International Group of Falls Church, VA, recently toured the Walsh Galleries for the purpose of familiarizing themselves with community-based galleries supported by the government. (The Walsh Gallery receives re-grants of federal monies at the county and state levels, while Seton Hall University receives federal funding overall.) Greg Stevens, chair of the Museum Professions graduate program, and Jeanne Brasile, director of the Walsh Gallery and an adjunct professor in the Museum Professions program, led the delegation on a guided tour of current exhibitions and delivered presentations on, among other topics, the changing roles of museums and curators.
