On Campus this Summer? So Are We

This summer, catch current exhibitions before they close or revisit your favorite works. The Zimmerli is open regular hours through July 31 and - as always - admission is free!

 

Summer Art Camp continues through July 29, with new weekly sessions (morning, afternoon, or all day) beginning each Monday. Visit the website for available sessions and registration information.

 

Join us for Art After Hours: First Tuesdays on July 5. This month's event features a curator-led tour of the renowned Norton and Nancy Dodge Collection of Nonconformist Art from the Soviet Union, an encyclopedic array of nonconformist art that extends from about 1956 to 1986, with additional work created through 1991, during the Gorbachev era. Throughout the evening, Jake’s Rockin’ Country Band performs the best of classic country songs and today’s hits by Johnny Cash, Lady Antebellum, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, and many more. 5 to 9pm. Free admission and complimentary refreshments.

Join us for Art After Hours: First Tuesdays on June 7. The evening features curator-led tours of the exhibition “Infinite Opportunities Offered in Color”:  Prints by Helen Hyde and Bertha Lum. The two American artists mastered complex color printing techniques and depicted aspects of Japanese and Chinese culture that essentially had been absent in the West. AlterEgo, a dynamic group of medical professionals from the administrative offices to the operating room, returns to the museum with a repertoire of rock and roll – mixed with blues, funk, and other groove-inspired genres – that spans from the 1950s to the present. Free admission and complimentary refreshments.

 

Summer Art Camp begins weekly sessions (morning, afternoon, or all day) on June 27. Registration continues throughout the five-week program, but many classes fill up by the first week.

 

See It Soon: Celebrate classic children’s literature with original drawings by Roger Duvoisin in Donkey-donkey, Petunia, and Other Pals, which closes June 26. The acclaimed illustrator of more than 140 books lived and worked in New Jersey for nearly five decades. The exhibition spans his entire career, chronicling the adventures, antics, and epiphanies of his characters – both animal and human – whose timeless life lessons resonate from generation to generation.
