War Is Not What You Think is the provocative title of the new exhibition at the La Salle University Art Museum. This exhibition features the work of Philadelphia artist Jane Irish which explores the impact of the Vietnam War and its continuing relevance today.

Through her paintings and ceramic vessels decorated with pastoral landscapes, people and poetry, Irish highlights the heroism of the soldiers as well the Vietnam Veterans Against the War, both of whom fought valiantly for freedom and peace. Irish has been drawing visual inspiration and historical research contexts from Imaginative Representations of the Vietnam Wara special collection containing over 20,000 items housed at the Connelly Library at La Salle University. 

The exhibition will be held simultaneously in two locations – at The La Salle University Art Museum and at the Connelly Library, from January 17th – March 29, 2012.  For further information call 215.951.1221 or visit the website at
