Pascal Verbena’s monumental assemblage sculpture, Holocaust, has been donated to the Collection de l'Art Brut by Sam and Betsey Farber. Created mainly from salvaged driftwood, the piece is over five metres long and comprises a multitude of drawers and secret compartments, containing graveyard soil and photographs of people considered to have disappeared. The Museum now features a newly designed exhibition layout for its permanent collection, which includes several other pieces from its Verbena collection. Also until April 14, 2013, an exhibition at the Collection will be displaying drawings, carved dolls and photographic prints by Morton Bartlett.
