Zimmerli Art Museum Offers First Look at Newly-Acquired Jersey City Museum Collection

The Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University in New Brunswick is showcasing its newly-acquired American art collection from the former Jersey City Museum for the first time. "American Stories: Gifts from the Jersey City Museum Collection” shares Jersey City history through work from artists like Chakaia Booker, May Stevens, Shelia Pepe, Melvin Edwards, and Jaune Quick-to-See Smith.

Host Maddie Orton spoke with Zimmerli Chief Curator Donna Gustafson about what we can look forward to seeing.

Thursday, Sept. 8, 2022 from 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., the museum will host “SparkNight,” an opening celebration and dance party for the exhibit.
