Academic Resources Overview

The Zimmerli Art Museum is a teaching museum and serves as a laboratory for learning that crosses disciplines and intellectual boundaries. Comprising nearly 60,000 works of art, the museum’s collection has strengths in American twentieth-century works on paper, French nineteenth-century prints, and Russian and Soviet nonconformist art. The website provides a useful overview of collection highlights. Images from the American, European, and Russian aspects of the museum's collection are featured on Google Art Project.  

Each semester the museum organizes a special exhibition on a theme or topic of interest to the Rutgers community. The Zimmerli also offers lectures, gallery talks, symposia, collections and special exhibition tours, and receptions throughout the year. The calendar provides information about these programs.

Faculty members may make arrangements to use the Class of 1937 Study Gallery, research works of art, bring classes to the museum, or explore ways to integrate their teaching with programs, collections, and exhibitions at the museum. To do so contact Donna Gustafson, Andrew W. Mellon Liaison for Academic Programs and Curator.
