March Comes in Like a Lion at the Zimmerli

The First Week is One of Our Busiest with a Variety of Free Public Programs

Families are invited to get creative at Art Together on March 4. This free, drop-in series of interactive workshops are led by Mason Gross MFA students and teaching artists.


Join us on March 6 at Art After Hours: First Tuesdays for an evening full of programs in conjunction with Impressions: Prints of Mexico, 1930s-40s / Impresiones: Estampas de México, 1930s-40s. In addition to curator-led tours in English and Spanish, there is an informal Meet the Curators discussion, as well as interactive activities presented by Rutgers-New Brunswick Mexican-American Student Association and Rutgers Bachata Club, and music by DJ RataPrincess.


The museum hosts Annu Palakunnathu Matthew: A Photographic Journey of Parallel Histories on March 8, from 4 to 6:30pm. Matthew, Director at the Center for the Humanities Professor of Art (Photography) at the University of Rhode Island, presents her photo-based artwork, which is a striking blend of still and moving imagery. This program is co-sponsored by The South Asian Studies Program, the Department of Art History, and the Zimmerli Art Museum, Rutgers University.


Be among the first to visit Nevermore: Leonid Lamm, Selected Works at an Exhibition Reception on March 9. With more than 60 works on view, this exhibition is the artist’s first museum retrospective in the United States. It acknowledges his significant effect on the development of Soviet nonconformist art and, subsequently, in establishing its legacy both within and outside the Soviet Union. Join a curator-led tour at 5pm, followed by a cocktail reception beginning at 5:30pm.


Music at the Museum features “French Romanticism,” performed by musicians from the Mason Gross School of the Arts Extension Division, on March 11 at the Zimmerli. Following the concert, stay for a curator’s talk, “Social Media: Lithography and the Illustrated Press," which delves in to the exhibition Set in Stone: Lithography in Paris, 1815-1900.


Visit Don't Worry Be Angry by Jeremy Deller any time! The design reflects the roots of much of this famed British artist’s political art work, focusing on society: its people, icons, myths, folklore, and cultural history. Installed on the front of the building, it is the current flag featured in Pledges of Allegiance, a nationwide public art project by Creative Time. Each of the 16 flags in this commissioned series is created by an acclaimed contemporary artist to reflect the current political climate. Share your pics on social media with #PledgesOfAllegiance, tagging @CreativeTimeNYC and @zimmerliartmuseum on Instagram and Facebook, as well as @creativetime and @zimmerlimuseum on Twitter.
