Art After Hours: First Tuesdays

January 2 / 5 to 9 pm

This month, Art After Hours offers curator-led tours and live music. The event is always free and open to the public, and includes complimentary refreshments. We extend a special welcome to Rutgers Winter Session and Rutgers Financial and Procurement staff this evening. 

Exhibition Tour / 5:45-6:15pm and 6:30-7pm 
Donna Gustafson, Curator of American Art and Mellon Director for Academic Programs, leads a tour of two exhibitions: Absence and Trace: The Dematerialized Image in Contemporary Art, which explores the evocative power of what is not visible, especially elements intentionally omitted by artists; and Stanley Twardowicz: Color Field Paintings, 1962-1990, which features paintings from the artist’s Ovals series of central dots surrounded by softly modulating, concentric bands, admired for their complex color and illusionistic depth. 

Insight Tour / 8-8:30pm
There’s often much more to a work of art than first meets the eye. Spend a half hour looking carefully and closely at a single work in this experience led by Curator of Education and Interpretation Amanda Potter. 

Live Music / Throughout the Evening
We welcome back Split the Lark New Music Ensemble, featuring Brianna Tagliaferro on cello and Kevin Madison on keyboard.

Admission, activities, and refreshments are FREE TO ALL.

Program dates for the 2017-18 season: September 5, October 3, November 7, December 5, January 2, February 6, March 6, April 3, and June 5. Art After Hours does not take place in May, July, and August.
