IN NATURE’S REALM: THE ART OF GERARD RUTGERS HARDENBERGH
OPENING FEBRUARY 19, 2021
In line with its mission of celebrating the art of New Jersey, Morven Museum & Garden is proud to present the first exhibition examining the work of Gerard Rutgers Hardenbergh (1856–1915). Born in New Brunswick, the great-great-grandson of Reverend Jacob Rutsen Hardenbergh (1736–1790), the first president of Queens College (Rutgers University), Hardenbergh was a self-taught artist and ornithologist.
Curator and Deputy Director Elizabeth Allan takes viewers on a virtual tour inside Morven’s latest exhibition. Join us for a private tour and opening reception!
This program is made possible, in part, by the Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission through funding from the Mercer County Board of Chosen Commissioners and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment of the Arts.
