Celebrate the start of a new season and the Zimmerli’s 50th anniversary like it’s the sixties! This month’s program includes curator-led tours of new exhibitions featuring artwork created circa 1966, as well as music from the era. PaparazZi Café offers extended hours.

Exhibition Tours / 5:45 and 6:30pm
Nicole Simpson, Assistant Curator of Prints and Drawings, leads a tour of Circa 1966: American Prints from the Collection. The prints date from 1960 to 1974, a period of renewed interest in printmaking in the United States, many deeply influenced by the social and political upheavals and scientific advancements of the time.

Donna Gustafson, Curator of American Art and Mellon Director of Academic Programs, provides insight into the exhibition Circa 1966: Paintings and Sculpture from the Collection. The artwork includes examples of color field painting, geometric abstraction, assemblage, and pop – all styles current in the international art world circa 1966.

Music / Throughout the Evening
A selection of greatest hits and forgotten gems circa 1966.

Complimentary Refreshments.
ADMISSION: FREE to all.
