JERSEY CITY - Paintings and sculptures by some world-famous artists that are normally on display in Los Angeles are making an appearance in New Jersey.

The collection of more than 100 pieces once owned by Frederick Weisman and left to his foundation when he died includes Marilyn Monroe silkscreens by Andy Warhol.

Weisman's widow, Billie Milam Weisman, put together the exhibit. "It's an enrichment of the soul," she says. "I mean, all of these artists dedicated their life to these creations."

The art ranges from serious to quirky. The exhibit also includes the famous “Foot and Hand” lithograph by Roy Lichtenstein and other noted works.

The exhibit runs through the end of the year in Jersey City. It's free and open to the public Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
