In Review 2011-2012

The Zimmerli is pleased to share its annual review for the fiscal year July 1, 2011, to June 30, 2012. The process of developing this comprehensive overview involved the entire staff, who compiled an array of accomplishments related to the museum’s collections, visitor services, education programs, and more.

Highlights include:

  • Developed a new and replicable model of intellectual collaboration between the Zimmerli and Rutgers Department of Art History supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
  • Refurbished the upper level of the Norton and Nancy Dodge Wing, including conservation of works from the acclaimed Soviet nonconformist art collection
  • Contributed images from the permanent collection of European, American, and Russian and Soviet Nonconformist art to the Google Art Project
  • Launched a comprehensive, redesigned website with a broader overview of the museum’s collections, programs, and opportunities
  • Implemented a visual rebranding and identity system that aligns the museum more closely with Rutgers
  • Toured nationally the retrospective exhibition of Joan Snyder’s graphic creativity
  • Printed Moscow Conceptualism in Context, a 432-page definitive study of the Dodge Collection, copublished with Prestel (Munich/Berlin/London/New York)
  • Introduced more than 8,000 young people from New Jersey to the museum through school group tours and programs

The publication demonstrates how the Zimmerli serves diverse audiences not only on campus and in New Jersey, but around the world. Both longtime supporters and those who recently have discovered the museum are sure to learn something new about the Zimmerli and all that it has to offer!
