Many Inspired Steps Opening May 25, 2019 through November 10, 2019 Riverside Gallery, 2nd floor
The New Jersey State Museum is pleased to present Many Inspired Steps an exhibition that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing. On July 21, 1969 at 10:56:15 p.m. E.D.T. Astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the Moon with the now famous words: “That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Neil Armstrong’s “one small step” was just the crowning accomplishment of an endeavor that goes back centuries.

The exhibit will be on view through November 10.

Monmouth County - Middletown - Faces From Our Past: Portraits From the Permanent Collection

Faces From Our Past: Portraits From the Permanent Collection


This exhibition features a selection of portraits from the permanent collection of MCHA that surveys the styles of portraiture available to residents of New Jersey and elsewhere in the nineteenth century. Those on view range from highly polished works by professional artists from New York and Philadelphia to the colorful efforts of local painters whose work today is considered folk art. Examples include portraits of young children, adults, and those who have reached advanced age. Many of the sitters lived in Middletown, Red Bank, Shrewsbury, and Holmdel, in addition to elsewhere in New Jersey and New York. The demand for likenesses peaked in the nineteenth century but, after the Civil War, photography generally supplanted the work that was formerly the realm of resident and itinerant painters. Artists represented in the exhibition include Micah Williams from New Brunswick, John Bradley of New York, Robert Street of Philadel…
