10:30 am - 1:30 pm
Visual Arts Gallery and
Harold B. Lemmerman Gallery
Did you know the site of the NJCU Campus was owned by a seed company in the 1800s?
All neighborhoods have a story to tell - including our own.
In conjunction with two map-related exhibitions, NJCU Galleries are pleased to offer a free waking tour of the NJCU neighborhood led by Patrick Shalhoub, NJCU librarian and author of “Images of America: Jersey City" (Arcadia, 1995), before and after curator's talk in each of the two galleries.
Please gather first in the Visual Arts Gallery at 11 a.m. for an introduction of the Maps Everywhere exhibition by the curator, Donna David (Associate Professor, FIT).
The walking tour will start at 11:30 a.m. and take you through the neighborhood within the context of the growth and development of Greenville and Jersey City from 1800s to the present. It will end at Hepburn Hall, the oldest building on campus, where the
Mapping Life exhibition is. Gallery Director Midori Yoshimoto will offer a tour of the exhibition from about 12:00 p.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Both galleries will remain open from 10:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.
NJCU Galleries are part of the NJCU Center for the Arts, whose programs are made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts / Department of the State, a partner agency for the National Endowment for the Arts.
