Art After Hours: First Tuesdays

WHEN: Tuesday, October 3 / 5 to 9 pm

Donna Gustafson, Curator of American Art and Mellon Director for Academic Programs, leads tours of Subjective Objective: A Century of Social Photography, which traces the history of documentary photography from the late 19th century to the present. Drawn from the Zimmerli’s collection, supplemented with works from public and private lenders, the exhibition focuses on photographers who use the camera to educate, persuade, and effect social change. And New Jersey-based independent alternative folk band Cold Weather Company returns to the museum! Combining the songwriting experience of its three members, Cold Weather Company carries a diverse sound, rich with vocal harmonies and instrumental builds evoking imagery of mountains, seas, and the cities in between. PaparazZi CafĂ© offers extended hours to accommodate Art After Hours guests.

The program is FREE and open to the public.
