The Art Bank collection might not hold a Jana Sterbak artwork, however we do have this oil on masonite piece by Marcel Piet-Hein Kerkhoff called Jana Sterbak's Stanley (2003). Stanley was the canine cameraman whose footage was used in Ms. Sterbak's world renowned installation work, From Here to There, that was screened at the 2003 Venice Biennale.
