Travels: Domestic and aBroad

  When artists Krysia Kolodziej and Libby Ramage met in the early 1990s, Krysia was editing for Princeton University Press and writing poetry; Libby was starting her work teaching art to very young children while making and exhibiting her own art. Both inveterate savers of ephemera, they have been supporting each other’s art-making ever since.   Libby’s mixed media pieces–with painting and drawing using acrylics and charcoal–were created from a scrapbook originally compiled by her stepfather’s mother, Hilda, a formidable woman who reigned over her family

The Paul Robeson Center for the Arts is home to award-winning, beautiful exhibition spaces, both inside the building and out. With few exhibiting spaces devoted to contemporary art in the region, the Arts Council of Princeton’s Paul Robeson Center for the Arts serves as a key venue for contemporary art in central New Jersey.

taplinThrough exhibitions, public art projects, artist-in-residence opportunities and collaborations with other institutions, the ACP’s exhibitions program engages artists in projects that explore our shared and ever-changing contemporary culture. Through thought-provoking exhibitions and related public programs, the ACP presents projects of broad aesthetic range and social, cultural and political themes relevant to our diverse audience.

Exhibitions, artist talks, and related programs are presented in the Peg and Frank Taplin Gallery and other spaces in and around the Paul Robeson Center. The Taplin Gallery, located just inside our front doors, offers a light-filled space for emerging and established artists to share their works.

Our Lower-Level Gallery features rotating exhibitions, including artwork by ACP Faculty and students. On the top floor, the Solley Lobby Gallery is ideal for community-based exhibitions and showcases work from local and/or emerging artists.

Outside of the Robeson Center, on the Michael Graves Terrace, we feature sculptures and outdoor works that fill the space surrounding the building and beckon passersby to consider their surroundings in a different light. Further afield, our Public Art Projects help encourage this consideration throughout our community.
