Robert Klein Gallery to Show New Work by 2012 Guggenheim Fellow Bill Jacobson

Bill Jacobson, Place (Series) #425, 2010 The ROBERT KLEIN GALLERY is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition of new photographs by 2012 Guggenheim Fellowship recipient BILL JACOBSON. The show will open September 15 and run through October 27, 2012.
