DESCRIPTION

Featuring works by many of the artists who defined the American art scene between 1980 and 1995, “Stars” is the first survey exhibition of prints produced by Derrière L’Étoile (“Behind the Star”) Studio. Founder and printmaker Maurice Sanchez joins curator Marilyn Symmes for a discussion about his legendary collaborations in the contemporary art world. A demonstration of printmaking techniques follows their conversation.

Art After Hours invites the Rutgers community and the general public to engage in a multifaceted approach to the arts on the first Wednesday evening of most months. A current exhibition is central to the evening, which leads off with a curator- or docent-led tour, followed by a performance, artist talk, or participatory workshop, and the opportunity to socialize. Seasonal specials in the Museum Store and complimentary light refreshments are also available.
