Art After Hours: First Tuesdays
July 2 / 5 to 9 pm

Join us for some cool art on a hot evening at our July Art After Hours! The evening’s offerings include curator-led exhibition tours, a conversation on living an artful life with two New Jersey artists, live music, refreshments, and more! This evening is presented in collaboration with our friends at AARP, and is free and open to the public.

Exhibition Tours / 5:15pm and 6:15pm 
Check out two great exhibitions drawn from our collections. Christine Giviskos, Curator of Prints, Drawings, and European Art, offers insights into Works in Progress: European Drawings from the Zimmerli Collection, which explores the different roles drawing can play in the development of a work of art, while Nicole Simpson, Assistant Curator of Prints and Drawings, discusses Stories of Wonder: Children’s Tales from Around the World, featuring original illustrations from five folk tales from different countries and cultures. See one exhibition at 5:15pm and the other at 6:15pm!

Living An Artful Life / 7pm  
Join us for a conversation between two New Jersey-based artists Rita Herzfeld and Chinyee, both of whom have continued active and successful artistic practices as older adults. Herzfeld was born in New York City and holds a BA from Rutgers University graduating in 1980. She also attended the Art Students League, the School of Visual Arts, and City College of NY. Born in 1929 in Nanjing, China, Chinyee’s work has been selected and honored by UNICEF and by the United States Art in Embassies program. Chinyee continues to paint in her Princeton studio and exhibits her work both here and abroad. The talk is moderated by Jeffrey Wechsler, retired Senior Curator of the Zimmerli Art Museum.
