WHEN: September 5, 2017 / 5 to 9 pm WHERE: Zimmerli Art Museum, 71 Hamilton St., New Brunswick
Exhibition Tours / 5:45-6:15 and 6:30-7 pm Christine Giviskos, the Zimmerli’s Curator of Prints, Drawings, and European Art, leads tours of On the Prowl: Cats and Dogs in French Prints. The exhibition features works from the Zimmerli’s renowned collection of nineteenth-century French graphic arts and explores the ways artists relied on traditional representations of cats and dogs, serving as symbols or indications of status, while also acknowledging their modern lives in Paris’s streets and parks. Nicole Simpson, the Zimmerli's Assistant Curator of Prints and Drawings, offers tours of Cats vs. Dogs: Illustrations for Children's Literature. Showcasing drawings from the Zimmerli's collection of original illustrations for children's literature, the exhibition captures the character and charms of both animals, as well as the joys that they bring to our everyday lives.
Live Music / All evening Enjoy live music performed by the Eric Mintel Quartet. Pianist and composer Eric Mintel has brought his own lyrical and energetic style of jazz to audiences of all ages for more than twenty years.
