New at the Princeton University Art Museum

Opening Celebration
Creation Myths
Saturday, January 18, 1–4 p.m.

Art@Bainbridge, the Museum’s gallery space on Nassau Street featuring the work of emerging contemporary artists, presents its second exhibition. Artist Hugh Hayden, whose conceptually resonant wood sculptures engage issues of home, craft, and the politics of materials, reimagines domestic spaces in historic Bainbridge House through meticulously crafted surreal sculptures.

Join us for an open house on Saturday, January 18, featuring curator-led and artist-led tours. Free.

Annual Benefit Gala

A Night in the Imperial Kingdom

Proceeds provide essential financial support for the Museum’s wide range of educational and outreach programs offered year-round, free of charge.
