A major art installation, SYZYGY I (1999-2000), will be located on the west side of the Montclair State University campus, near the Clove Road exit. The installation's opening is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 17, at 2 p.m. at the site. Remarks will be made by MSU Critic-in-Residence Dominique Nahas. The event is free and open to the public.
The work is a collaboration between MSU's Artist-in-Residence Osvaldo Romberg and graduate students Christopher Corey, Peerayot Gwilliam, Joanne Lefrak, Cristina Pineros, Paul Shields and D'Mitri Wilkins, as well as Nahas.
Syzygy is a word used in a variety of disciplines to refer to a pair of connected or correlative objects. In astronomy, for example, syzygy means the conjunction and opposition of two heavenly bodies or either of the points at which these two take place.
