Exhibition Tours / 5:45 and 6:30pm
Christine Giviskos, Curator of Prints, Drawings, and European Art, leads tours of Circa 1866: European Prints from the Collection. This exhibition features prints by artists working in France and England during the 1860s and early 1870s, selected from the Zimmerli Art Museum’s renowned collection of nineteenth-century works on paper. They represent a new generation of artists who embraced the expressive qualities of etching and realized works with rich contrasts of light and dark that utilize a range of freely drawn and precise lines. Figural painters such as Jean-François Millet and Édouard Manet explored different combinations of marks to create their depictions of urban and rural types, while landscape specialists, including Maxime Lalanne and Auguste Delâtre demonstrate the range of atmospheric effects possible through etching. On this occasion of the Zimmerli’s golden anniversary, these prints celebrate the museum’s graphic arts collection and its strength in nineteenth-century French art, built over the last fifty years.

Live Music / Sets at 5 and 7pm
The Rutgers Chamber Jazz Ensemble, comprising top student musicians from Mason Gross School of the Arts and featuring bass, drum, guitar, piano, and sax-alto, performs under the direction of Victor Lewis.
