In order to accommodate commencement ceremonies and celebrations throughout May, the Zimmerli has extended the deadline to submit photos to the HereNow: Rutgers 250 initiative. More than 1,800 (and counting) photos create a dynamic, once-in-a-lifetime collage that celebrates the university’s milestone anniversary. We encourage you not to miss this opportunity to make history by encapsulating YOUR Rutgers experiences for future generations. Upload images from 2015 and 2016 at herenow250.rutgers.edu. Following the deadline, a panel of arts professionals will select 250 photos to be featured in a full-color art book available this fall.
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.
