Member First Tuesday

Tuesday, January 4, 2022

On the first Tuesday of each month, the Museum is open just for Members between 11am-2pm

We invite you to take a look at several of our recently opened exhibitions Stowed Away: A Traveling Philographist and His Arctic Uke and Off the Streets: Urban Art New Jersey. Or check out the newly on view installation, The Worlds of Walter Rossi, where the artist integrates movement into his sculpture creating theatrical presentations that evoke humor while engaging viewers in profound and often unexpected ways.


Erik Bergrin:The 8 Dissolutions

New Exhibition on view Friday, January 28

Erik Bergrin: The 8 Dissolutions is a fiber-sculpture installation by New York City-based artist and costume maker Erik Bergrin. A student of Buddhist philosophy, Bergrin explores the transience of the human body and the eternity of the soul in this new collection of work. The exhibition takes its name from the eight dissolutions, a Tibetan Buddhist meditation practice that visualizes one’s mortality in the recurring cycle of death and rebirth on the path to enlightenment.


Film Screenings in the Bickford Theatre

Join us for two captivating films this January in the Bickford Theatre. Presenting Secret Impressionists on January 12 and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time on January 30.

Secret Impressionists reveals the story of the art revolution sparked by the Impressionist movement, along with an unveiling of 50 previously unseen works by Impressionist masters Manet, Caillebotte, Renoir, Monet, Cézanne, Signac, Sisley and Morisot.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a critically acclaimed play that took the theatre and screen by storm. It is based on the novel by Mark Haddon and adapted by Simon Stephens.
