Additional Information: Join curator-led tours of two new exhibitions at 6 and 6:30 pm. Melvin Edwards: Five Decades is the first retrospective of the artist’s work in more than 20 years. His career (which includes 30 years as a professor at Mason Gross) spans crucial periods of upheaval and change in American culture and society, and his sculpture provides a critical bridge between modernist techniques and materials and contemporary approaches to the art object. Vagabond Artist: “Pop” Hart in Tahiti, Mexico, and the Caribbean focuses on more than 40 of this noted American realist’s watercolors, drawings, and prints of daily life and rural landscapes that he depicted during excursions in the early 1900s. These vibrant images are selected from the Zimmerli’s extensive collection of works by the artist. Throughout the evening, enjoy music provided by DJ on the terrace and complimentary light refreshments. Free admission.
