On their Walls: Area African American Collectors and their African American Art showcases works of art by a select group of African American artists collected by four local African American women. Highlights of the show include five serigraphs from the Prevalence of Ritual Portfolio by Romare Bearden completed in 1974 as well as a few rarely seen paintings by noted Trenton artist, Tom Malloy. The artists in the exhibition range from established to rising local and international artists, including Frank Morrison, Sanford Biggers, Ellen Powell Tiberino, and Mercy Moyo.
This year is the 174th anniversary of John A. Roebling's Sons Company, the largest employer in Trenton and a world leader in the construction of suspension bridges. This exhibit will include 5 large paintings from the Roebling Company's exhibit at the 1939 New York World's Fair depicting the Brooklyn and George Washington bridges and interior factory scenes as well as a bronze plaque from the 1933 Chicago World's Fair and much more.
Artifacts and memorabilia relating to the history of the NJM Insurance Group will be featured in a display case on the Museum's second floor. NJM "adopted" this case, which permits the company to stage a display of its choosing for a six-month period.
