A Cache of Kinetic Art: Simply Steampunk Opening Reception 

Thursday, March 14, 2019, 6:00PM – 7:30PM

Simply Steampunk is the second installment of our four-year exhibition series, A Cache of Kinetic Art, exploring kineticism in contemporary artistic practice. Only fully appreciated when set in motion, these imaginative works capture the wondrous vision of a world powered by steam-engine technology from a bygone era. Combining 19th-century machine aesthetics with creative expression, engineering, and design, the interactive sculptures and installations in Simply Steampunk delight the senses with amazement, luminosity, sound, and movement.

Museum Members: FREE

Leadership support for this exhibition is provided by our partners at M&T Bank.

Morris Museum Gala

The Morris Museum Gala: Boisterous, Beautiful Brass was held on Saturday, October 6, 2018

I wasn’t able to attend this year’s Gala but would like to make a fully tax-deductible donation:

 


A Rodin in Madison – The Discovery of a Masterpiece

This special presentation about the discovery of a large marble bust of Napoleon Bonaparte by Auguste Rodin in the council chambers of Madison, NJ was held on December 10, 2017 at the Morris Museum.

Mallory Mortillaro serves as the Curator of Collections for the Hartley Dodge Foundation in Madison, NJ.  While she was cataloging the artwork housed inside of the Harley Dodge Memorial she uncovered this masterpiece that has been lost to the art world since the 1930’s.  After a year of research the piece was authenticated as an official work by Auguste Rodin.

Nicolas W. Platt, President of the Hartley Dodge Foundation, offered introductory remarks about this remarkable story.

See a video of the presentation at the Morris Museum.
