Additional Information: Founded in 1966 as the Rutgers University Art Gallery, the Zimmerli has evolved into one of the largest university art museums in the United States. This exhibition, a companion to Circa 1966: American Prints from the Collection, marks the museumís fifty-year anniversary by focusing on the years around 1966. Through the 1960s, the Cold War between the USA and the USSR flared up with proxy wars around the globe, among them the war in Vietnam. American President Lyndon B. Johnson poured resources and men into the war effort and began systematic bombing of the North Vietnam capital, Hanoi. Concerned citizens took to the streets to protest the war, while continuing to march for civil rights and equal rights for women. While the world was divided into two spheres of influence in uneasy balance, music, fashion, and art passed over borders in an international mix of styles with centers of activity in North and South America, Africa, Europe, and Asia.
