A Pop Up Museum Thursday, November 17 / 6 to 8pm Winners & Losers
What’s a Pop Up Museum? A one-night exhibition created by YOU. Bring something connected to the theme of “Winners & Losers” to share with others. It could be that trophy won in 8th grade, a memento from a long-lost love, a bumper sticker from a political campaign, or anything else that comes to mind. It’s like “show and tell,” but not just for kids! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Music at the Museum Sunday, November 20 / 1:30 to 3pm Sculpture in Wood
Join us for the second concert of this season's Music at the Museum, a concert series featuring classical and jazz musicians from the faculty of the Mason Gross School of the Arts Extension Division. Sculpture in Wood features works by Rüdiger Pawassar, Russell Hartenberger, Gordon Stout, and Robert "Tigger" Benford for marimba and percussion, performed by Peter Saleh with all-star alumni from the past 12 years of the Rutgers Youth Percussion Ensemble.
The concerts take place at the Zimmerli and allow visitors to enjoy art and music side-by-side. Each concert is preceded by a brief talk related to the performance theme and, at the conclusion, guests are invited to take a tour of museum highlights. The Music at the Museum series is organized to present a broad repertoire accessible to audiences of all ages.
Admission is free, but seating is limited. For further details and the season schedule, visit the webpage.
