During Reunions, the Princeton University Art Museum continues its three-month exhibition of sculptures, collages, and other assemblages from German avant-garde artist Kurt Schwitters. It is the first overview of his work in the United States since his retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in 1985.
The Art Museum also features three exhibitions drawn largely from University collections: “The TÅkaidÅ Road: 19th- and 20th-Century Journeys through Japanese Prints”; “Lasting Impressions of the Grand Tour: Giuseppe Vasi’s Rome”; and “When Men and Mountains Meet: China as Land and People.”
A selection of visual works by students in the Lewis Center for the Arts are on display at two sites: the Lucas Gallery (185 Nassau Street) and the James S. Hall Memorial Gallery (Butler College, lower level between Building A and Bogle Hall).
