THE JACOB LANDAU INSTITUTE

Soon after Landauís death in November 2001, the Jacob Landau Institute (JLI) was created and subsequently gained non-profit status. Its primary purpose is preserving his legacy and extending his unique philosophy of education into our schools at all levels, as well as supporting and nurturing individual artists. 

Preservation of Landauís legacy and serving as a conduit for others to experience his work and artistic vision are vital elements of a mission that we hope will serve as a model for other artists to draw on and build upon. Too often significant artists and their estates have lacked the resources to maintain their legacies, thereby allowing them to devolve and erode with the passage of time, robbing our society of important cultural and artistic philosophies, history, and artifacts.

Based in Roosevelt, NJ, the JLI strives to leverage that presence to enrich the artistic communities of both the local and the greater New Jersey areas. We have established two major cooperative agreements, one with Drew University in Madison to permanently house the Jacob Landau Archives and a complete collection of his extensive book illustrations; and the other with Monmouth University in West Long Branch to create education programs that have far-reaching benefits for the growing artistic community and general population of Monmouth County, and beyond.
