Dalia Ramanauskas: As We Embark

Munger Gallery

Allow artist Dalia Ramanauskas to take you on a journey. After a childhood spent fleeing Nazi-occupied Lithuania during World War II, she settled in New Haven, CT in 1949. Ramanauskas creates carefully rendered piles of old and tattered objects in pen and ink – a crucial reminder of the value each object holds in a world of disposable goods and reminiscent of childhood imaginative possibility where the mundane can become magical. Imbuing each work with her subtle sense of humor, Ramanauskas takes viewers along on her flights of fancy.
