• The Rutgers Scarlet Knight Jazz Trombones, directed by Professor Conrad Herwig, return to the museum performing their popular arrangements of holiday classics throughout the evening.


    A guided tour of Artists of Black Mountain College: Woven and Intertwined spotlights works by Josef Albers, Anni Albers, and Ruth Asawa, who were connected through the school. Influential even in its own time, Black Mountain (1933-1957) was an experimental college in North Carolina that viewed the study of art as central to a liberal arts education, a concept that continues to resonate today.


    Actors from Crossroads Theatre Company present selections from its 6th Annual Holiday Jubilee, The Story of an Inspirational Gospel Choir. This multicultural celebration of the holiday spirit is a family favorite that has become a tradition in downtown New Brunswick’s theatre community.


    Slide Jam welcomes artists Wes Sherman and Irina Danilova. Sherman, a favorite instructor for the Zimmerli’s drawing classes and summer art camp, is a painter who has exhibited nationwide. He also is an adjunct professor at several colleges and serves as Chair of Exhibitions at The Center for Contemporary Art in Bedminster, New Jersey. Danilova is a visual, media, and performance artist, as well as a curator, whose installations have been shown around the world. Born and raised in Ukraine, she lived and worked in Moscow, and now is based in Brooklyn.


    Art After Hours takes place from 5:00 to 9:00 pm, offering free admission and complimentary refreshments, featuring Hidden Grounds.

  • The Zimmerli launched its interactive initiative HereNow: Rutgers 250, which invites students, alumni, faculty, staff, and visitors to share photos of their experiences with Rutgers University. The photos will be used to create a digital gallery, museum exhibition, and book, celebrating the global Rutgers community and capturing life across the New Brunswick, Camden, and Newark campuses, as well as at the university’s locations across New Jersey and around the world.


    HereNow is part of the yearlong commemoration leading up to the university’s 250th anniversary on November 10, 2016. A signature event of the Rutgers 250 celebration, it also recognizes the Zimmerli’s upcoming 50th year of bringing innovating arts exhibitions and programs to its audiences.
