Art After Hours: First Tuesdays

October 3 / 5 to 9pm

This month, Art After Hours offers curator-led exhibition tours and live music. The program is free and open to the public, and includes complimentary refreshments.

Exhibition Tours / 5:45-6:15 and 6:30-7 pm
Donna Gustafson, Curator of American Art and Mellon Director for Academic Programs, leads tours of Subjective Objective: A Century of Social Photography, which traces the history of documentary photography from the late 19th century to the present. Drawn from the Zimmerli Art Museum’s collection, with additional loans from public and private collections, the exhibition focuses on American, European, and Soviet and post-Soviet Russian photographers who use the camera to educate, persuade, and to effect social change. In recognizing that such tactics originated long before the existence of current social media platforms, visitors may reconsider their own relationships with images: the ones they view, as well as the ones they post.

Live Music / Throughout the Evening
New Jersey-based independent alternative folk band Cold Weather Company returns to the museum. Combining the songwriting experience of its three members – Brian Curry, Jeff Petescia, and Steve Shimchick – Cold Weather Company carries a diverse sound, rich with vocal harmonies and instrumental builds evoking imagery of mountains, seas, and the cities in between. The band formed nearly four years ago while on campus at Rutgers. Since graduating in 2015, the alternative folk band released their second full-length album.

Admission, activities, and refreshments are FREE TO ALL.

Program dates for the 2017-18 season: September 5, October 3, November 7, December 5, January 2, February 6, March 6, April 3, and June 5. Art After Hours does not take place in May, July, and August.

In addition, special guests and events enliven these evenings with unique and engaging presentations.
