Last Chance: On and Off the Streets: Urban Art New Jersey

Closing Sunday, February 27, 2022

If you haven't seen the knockout exhibition, On and Off the Streets: Urban Art New Jersey, you only have four more weeks. Come in out of the cold and see the 10 large-scale murals in the Museum's gallery. The exhibition examines the duality of New Jersey artists whose creative versatility extends from the street to the studio.

Generous support for this exhibition is provided by the Joseph Robert Foundation and Loop Colors.

Spark!Lab: New Young Inventor Space

Open Wednesday-Sunday Noon to 4:00 PM

We opened a newly created exploration space for our youngest inventors ages 1-4. This specially designed space has a train and an exploration table filled with unique tools to help spark creativity, thinking, and learning.

Spark!Lab's activities are for any child (ages 5-12 years old) and they provide a new informal approach to hands-on learning. Instead of following step-by-step instructions, young inventors will be empowered to problem-solve and overcome real-world obstacles.

All children must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of their time in Spark!Lab.

Spark!Lab at the Morris Museum is made possible by leadership support from BASF. Generous support is also made possible by Gay H. Osborn on behalf of the Blanche and George Jones Fund, Inc.



On-Screen at the Bickford Theatre

Fight off the cold with two films this February in the Bickford Theatre. Presenting National Gallery on February 9 and War Horse on February 13.

National Gallery is the portrait of a place, its way of working and relations with the world, its staff and public, and its paintings. This film takes the audience behind the scenes of a London institution, on a journey to the heart of a museum inhabited by masterpieces of Western art from the Middle Ages to the 19th Century. 

The critically acclaimed and international smash-hit play War Horse returns to screen in the Bickford Theatre. It is based on the ​beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, adapted by Nick Stafford in association with ​the award-winning Handspring Puppet Company.
