We recently took a stroll through the New Jersey State Museum with Curator of Cultural History Nicholas Ciotola to explore the exhibition Objects Count: A Decade of Collecting at the New Jersey State Museum. The show draws from all four museum collections: Fine Art, Natural History, Archaeology/Ethnography and Cultural History.

Jerry, There is no bio that will seem complete for you. Where would it be listed, amongst your numerous and diverse accomplishments, that you talked to people, always seemed to find time for the younger artists, to talk to them and look at their sketchbooks?
