The Zimmerli

The Zimmerli Art Museum is located on the campus of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J. Situated as it is between two cities, New York and Philadelphia, known for their museums, it doesn’t get a whole lot of attention. But the Zimmerli has an impressive collection of Russian art, including a vast number of works by underground artists from the Soviet era (Make Art, Not War). It also houses the collection of the Jersey City Art Museum, which was donated to the Zinnerli after that museum closed its doors. Here’s a sample of what you can see (and it’s free).

    The Pulaski Skyway piece is a gem and brings back a flood of memories. Thanks for sharing that and all the others. I’m glad the Jersey City Art Museum collection was preserved.
