WHERE: Zimmerli Art Museum, Corner George & Hamilton Sts., New Brunswick

 

HereNow: RUTGERS 250By Karishma Motwani

Join us for a special Art After Hours: First Tuesdays to celebrate HereNow: Rutgers 250. The Zimmerli’s first interactive initiative, HereNow is part of the year-long commemoration leading up to the university’s 250th anniversary in November. This program is co-organized by Rutgers University Program Association (RUPA.)

The museum invites the global Rutgers community to capture their experiences at university locations and events, across New Jersey and around the world. View photos that already have been submitted, meet people behind the project, and learn how you can become involved as it grows through the spring. Following the close of the exhibition, the 250 most compelling images will be published in a book available in the fall of 2016.

Upload your photos now to see them displayed on the museum's gallery walls in time for this special event on February 2 from 5 to 9pm! Live music presented by the New Brunswick Jazz Project. FREE admission and complimentary refreshments.
