Insights into Suburbia: art exhibition
Reception - Thurs. June 5th

Members of the Rutgers community and the general public are invited to attend a reception for the art exhibition, Insights into Suburbia, at the John Cotton Dana Library on the Rutgers-Newark campus on Thursday June 5th, 5:00 - 7:00 pm. Exhibition curator Esther Thyssen, PhD, Associate Professor of Art History, Sage College will speak at the reception.

The exhibition features selections from an exhibit of 55 works by 27 artists which was organized by NAWA, the oldest professional women's fine arts organization in the United States. Works were solicited from women artists across the nation to describe their physical social, and cultural perceptions of contemporary American suburbia. The pieces in the exhibit include paintings, photographs, drawings, and mixed media.

The exhibition is available for viewing in the Dana Gallery and Dana Room, on the fourth floor of the library, until June 30th.
