The Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University–New Brunswick is hosting a number of noteworthy summer exhibitions. Here are four, running through July, to consider. Impressions: Prints of Mexico, 1930s–40s showcases the time when Mexico was home to a renowned mural movement and became a flourishing printmaking community. Set in Stone: Lithography in Paris, 1815–1900 demonstrates the museum’s deep collection of 19th-century French graphic arts (an example is pictured). It’s Just a Job: Bill Owens and Studs Terkel on Working in 1970s America presents Owens’s photographs with audio interviews by Terkel, the pioneering oral historian who examined working life in America. And Stanley Twardowicz: Color Field Paintings, 1962–1990 features the artist’s work that was influenced by Zen and other philosophies that affected popular culture of the 1960s, reflected in the complex color and illusionistic depth of the paintings.
