The Newark Museum opened to the public 100 years ago. In celebration they have mounted an exhibition that presents the institution as a place for discovery, not only of art, but also music. People and events are given the same weight as past exhibitions – all working to advance the Museum’s mission of welcoming people on to the campus and delighting them with innovative exhibitions and programing. Often, museums will celebrate an anniversary through key figures of the administration and highlights from the collection. Newark’s approach is refreshing in honoring the full organism. On view until April, 2010, so no rush. But, do try and get to Newark, the museum is an easily missed gem.
