Jersey Arts TV: Alonzo Adams tells stories of the Black experience at Zimmerli Art Museum

Alonzo Adams has been using his paintings to tell stories of the contemporary Black experience for over 25 years. In his first solo museum exhibition at Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University, his own story as an artist is being told, from his very first painting to pieces that have not been seen publicly for years. We went to New Brunswick to speak with the artist about putting this exhibition together, and how it feels to return to Rutgers, where he once studied. “Alonzo Adams: A Griot’s Vision” is on display through February 25.

New Brunswick, NJ | On display through February 25, 2024. Click here for more information on the exhibit.
