The Art Museum is bringing its collections to town through a new project called Art for the Streets. High-quality reproductions of extraordinary artworks from the Museum’s globe-spanning collections now adorn empty storefronts in Palmer Square and the Princeton Shopping Center. This initiative seeks to help sustain the liveliness of Princeton at a time when many forces are challenging small businesses. Residents out for some shopping or a masked stroll now encounter reproductions of works from across the collections, including a beaded African tunic, an Edo-period Japanese print, a sculpture of a Maya god, and a painting by Édouard Manet, among others. Each is accompanied by a link to additional information, so the viewing experience can be educational too.
