About the New Exhibitions & Terrace Mural

Wild Ride

Step onto our terrace and take in the visual marvel that is Phillip Adams’ Wild Ride mural, an awe-inspiring homage to the Raritan River flowing by the museum. This 90-foot masterpiece constructed on the museum’s retention wall captures the essence of the river cascading naturally downstream, evoking memories of a time predating the mills and the man-made dam. It serves as a poignant reminder of humanity’s transformative impact on the environment and underscores our responsibilities in adapting to these changes.

Phillip Adams: Leave No Trace

Journey into the delicate balance between man and nature. Adams’ Leave No Trace showcases our conflicting desires: to both etch our presence and preserve nature’s unmarred beauty. Drawing on themes of the Sublime, these artworks are a celebration and contemplation of the spaces we inhabit and impact.

Marsha Goldberg & Andrew Zimmerman: Taking Shape

A tw0-person exhibition that brings together the distinctive works of Marsha Goldberg and Andrew Zimmerman. While both artists differ in their mediums and techniques, they converge in their exploration of form, color, and space, creating a harmonious dialogue between their pieces.

Ahrong Kim: Over the Paper Plane

Experience the emotive world of Ahrong Kim’s ceramic sculptures. Each piece, a testament to human emotion, invites viewers to explore the myriad psychological landscapes that shape our experiences.
