Art After Hours: First Wednesdays
New Brunswick, NJ 08901
Synopsis: The evening spotlights the new exhibition “Stars: Contemporary Prints by Derrière L’Étoile Studio.”
What was it like to help painter Elizabeth Murray make her first lithographic series in 1980? Or to work with Keith Haring as he transformed his iconic subway murals into his first prints? And what technical skills are required to assist Jeff Koons? Stop by Art After Hours to learn about these and other printmaking innovations over the last 35 years. Zimmerli curator Marilyn Symmes and studio founder Maurice Sánchez lead a tour of “Stars,” followed by a conversation about his experiences working with many artists who have defined the American art scene since the 1980s. In addition, the Museum Store welcomes Kuhl Designs for a jewelry trunk show and members of the Zimmerli Student Advisory Board (ZSAB) answer questions about becoming involved with Art After Hours programming. Seasonal specials in the Museum Store and complimentary light refreshments are available. Free to Rutgers students, faculty, staff, and Zimmerli members (with valid ID). $6 general admission.
