DESCRIPTION

Filmed entirely in the Winter Palace of the Russian State Hermitage Museum, the historical drama Russian Ark takes viewers on a journey—with real and fictional people—through St. Petersburg's 300-year history. A performance of Russian classical music follows.

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.
