Morris County - Morristown - Columbia: Thomas Nast Illustrates the Moral Conscience of the United States

Image
Columbia: Thomas Nast Illustrates the Moral Conscience of the United States (February-July, 2020) Thomas Nast (1840-1902) is credited with popularizing the image of Columbia, the allegorical female embodiment of the United States and the Moral Conscience of the nation. Nast portrayed Columbia as a strong female symbol of the United States. While artists often depicted Columbia’s male counterpart with flaws of the everyman, Columbia was always illustrated as a strong protector of the country. This exhibition explores Nast’s images of Columbia as the champion of American ideals through a selection of original engravings. Museum Hours Wednesday, Thursday & Sunday
1:00-4:00pm. Group tours welcome by appointment Sunday-Friday.

Mercer County - Trenton - Fine Feathered Friends: Birds as Mainstay and Muse

Fine Feathered Friends: Birds as Mainstay and Muse
Opening January 4, 2020

They occupy our forests, fields, parks, beaches, farms, backyards and even our homes. Indeed, birds are everywhere. But many New Jerseyans remain largely unaware of the profound natural and cultural significance of these ubiquitous avian creatures.

This exhibition brings together a wide assortment of artifacts and specimens to explore two concepts about our fine feathered friends – their status as an important ecological mainstay and their historical role as a design-inspiring force – or muse – for New Jersey artisans in the decorative arts.



Museum Hours:

Tuesday – Sunday 
9 am to 4:45 pm
