Exhibition Tours / 5:15 and 6:15pm
Check out two great exhibitions drawn from our collections. Christine Giviskos, Curator of Prints, Drawings, and European Art, offers insights into Works in Progress: European Drawings from the Zimmerli Collection, which explores the different roles drawing can play in the development of a work of art, while Nicole Simpson, Assistant Curator of Prints and Drawings, discusses Stories of Wonder: Children’s Tales from Around the World, featuring original illustrations from five folk tales from different countries and cultures. See one exhibition at 5:15pm and the other at 6:15pm!

Living an Artful Life / 7:30 to 8:30pm
Join us for a conversation between two New Jersey-based artists Rita Herzfeld and Chinyee, both of whom have continued active and successful artistic practices as older adults. Herzfeld was born in New York City and holds a BA from Rutgers University graduating in 1980. She also attended the Art Students League, the School of Visual Arts, and City College of NY. Born in 1929 in Nanjing, China, Chinyee’s work has been selected and honored by UNICEF and by the United States Art in Embassies program. Chinyee continues to paint in her Princeton studio and exhibits her work both here and abroad. The talk is moderated by Jeffrey Wechsler, retired Senior Curator of the Zimmerli Art Museum.
