Big Ten: Art

To celebrate the Scarlet Knights’ entry into the Big Ten athletic conference, the Zimmerli is spotlighting ten intriguing works of art from the permanent collection. The selections are chosen by the museum's curatorial staff and graduate assistants, and unveiled at Art After Hours during each month of the academic year.

Art After Hours: First Tuesdays

September 4 / 5-9pm

“What’s new?” is a question one hears a lot this time of year, as people catch up with each other after summer break. There’s lots new here at the Zimmerli as well, as we kick off the fall season and semester with new exhibitions and collection rotations. Stop by September’s Art After Hours for great music, refreshments, and to see what’s new in the galleries—including a first look at our special exhibition Self-Confessed! The Inappropriately Intimate Comics of Alison Bechdel.
