The new Pauly Friedman Art Gallery occupies more than 2,700 square feet of space on the first floor of Misericordia's newly opened Insalaco Hall, a technologically-smart learning environment that was opened to the academic community in March 2009. The multipurpose gallery will be used for performing arts as well as visual arts, and will have a portable stage that can be used for small musical performances and poetry readings, according to Dona Posatko, gallery assistant and curator.
The gallery also features a surround sound system, motorized blackout shades, three types of track lighting, and a bamboo floor. A custom-designed storage area will double as a small theater for short creative film movies produced and directed by Misericordia students.
"Pauly Friedman was unique,’’ said Michael A. MacDowell, president of Misericordia University. “Her dedication to and her support of worthy causes in our Valley and in places of need throughout the world served as an inspiration to all of us. We are indeed fortunate that she was particularly involved with Misericordia. She was in the forefront of many of the service and artistic efforts that are such an important part of this university."
The gallery staff will work closely with Misericordia faculty to provide an academic component to exhibits bringing in installations that coincide with course material that the students are studying
