A Cache of Kinetic Art:
Simply Steampunk
Call for Artists

A four-year exhibition series featuring a variety of themes – A Cache of Kinetic Art, debuted in March 2018.

Simply Steampunk, the next part of this series, pursues the goal of featuring the creative energy and vitality of kineticism, by re-envisioning 19th century aesthetics combined with advances in machine technology. By mounting an exhibition such as this, the Morris Museum intends to draw parallels of innovative engineering, design and imagination of present-day artisans, and draw comparisons to the technical ingenuity and functionality of a bygone era. The exhibition will be on view from March 15 to July 14, 2019.

Trumpets, Weird and Wonderful:
Treasures from the National Music Museum
Sunday, October 7, 2018 – Sunday, March 17, 2019

Forget everything you think you know about the trumpet, the best-known member of the brasswind family. Trumpet-like musical instruments appear across time and cultures in surprising shapes, sizes, and features, from the conch-shell trumpet to the didgeridoo, from the valveless natural trumpet to the keyed bugle, from the Swiss alphorn to the s-shaped serpent.

By special arrangement with the National Music Museum, America’s preeminent collection of historic musical instruments, this exhibit of more than forty musical instruments, including audio and video demonstrations, will delight young and old, student and connoisseur.

Community Helpers: Firefighters
Saturday, December 15, 2018 – Thursday, February 28, 2019

Since the invention of fire, people have been developing methods to put them out. Always ready to roll out at any time in the event of an emergency, firefighters play a crucial role in society. From rescuing those trapped in burning buildings, to assisting family pets stuck in trees.

Take a closer look into the lives of volunteer and full-time firefighters, who make it their profession to put the safety of others above their own.
