Take a look into an artist's mind at the New Haven Free Public Library's latest exhibit Mondoexpressionism. The word, coined by the artist Elisa Vegliante herself, means something like "Beyond the Scream." Her oil on canvas paintings are bizarre and slightly disturbing, but what would you expect from an honest form of expression? The paintings are on view at the library until Sept. 8.
