Susana Jacobson (MFA Senior Critic) in exhibition reviewed in the Grand Fork Herald (Thurs., Nov. 6, 2008)

Susana Jacobson is in an exhibition entitled "Animals: Them and Us,” which is on view at the North Dakota Museum of Art in Grand Forks, ND. In a review of the exhibition Paulette Tobin writes:
"There’s something just the slightest bit disturbing about looking into the face of an ape, something unsettling, maybe even a bit creepy. Their faces are so human, and yet not human, so open and yet so mysterious...Susana Jacobson’s colorful and compelling paintings of the faces of monkeys/people are part of “Animals: Them and Us,” one of two new exhibits in the North Dakota Museum of Art in Grand Forks. In her small portraits, people are portrayed as monkeys. Look at them closely and see if you can keep from thinking about Charles Darwin and evolution. Are we more like monkeys, or are monkeys more like us?"
