Experience More Art this Fall

The New Brunswick Chamber Orchestra kicks off a new season of Reframing Classical Music with “Beginnings” on October 30 at 3pm, featuring works by Haydn, Beethoven, Nyman, Shaw, and Riley. This salon series introduces visitors to what inspires the orchestra members, who perform short, theme-based works mixed with tastings, wine pours, and conversation in an informal atmosphere. The program is free and open to the public.


Stop by after work or classes for Art After Hours: First Tuesdays on November 1. Enjoy curator-led tours of Three American Painters: David Diao, Sam Gilliam, Sal Sirugo and Looking Back at the 1980s: Gifts to the Collection, live music by the Rutgers Afro-Caribbean Jazz Ensemble (directed by Professor Bill O'Connell), and Slide Jam presentations by Patricia Brace and Brad Terhune. 5 to 9pm. Free and open to the public. Complimentary refreshments.


Works on view inspire families to get creative together at Passport to Art, which is now free and no longer requires registration. Drop in any time between 1 and 3pm on Sunday, November 6, for the next workshop in this popular interactive series.


Join us for a day trip to the Baltimore Museum of Art on November 17. Visit the highly anticipated exhibition Matisse/Diebenkorn (during its only East Coast stop) and take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation Study Room to learn about the upcoming exhibition Stanley William Hayter and Atelier 17. The cost includes transportation, admission, tours, and lunch at Gertrude’s. Find more details here, as well as information about a special offer if you register for all three day trips during the 2016-17 season.


“Show and Tell” is no longer just for kids! Join us for Winners & Losers: A Pop Up Museum, a one-night-only exhibition co-sponsored by the Zimmerli Art Museum and coLAB Arts, on November 17, from 6 to 8pm. Bring an item connected to the theme of “Winners & Losers” to display among treasured items from other members of the campus and New Brunswick communities. It could be that trophy you won in eighth grade, a memento from a long-lost love, a bumper sticker from a political campaign, or whatever else comes to mind. This free program is open to the public and takes place at the Zimmerli. Email education@zimmerli.rutgers.edu with any questions.


Experience visual art and music side-by-side during Music at the Museum.
