Join us for special celebrations that raise vital funds for the Museum’s exhibitions, performances, and programs. From the Gala to the Golf Outing, these festive events are not to be missed.
Morris Museum Gala
The Morris Museum Gala: Graffiti Goes Glam was held on Saturday, September 14, 2019.
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.
