Drop by this Sunday, July 29, from 2 - 5 pm, for
Grand Opening of "I Belong" and "Hoboken in Print"
|Join us this Sunday from 2 - 5 pm for a free opening reception for our latest exhibits: "I Belong: A History of Civic and Social Clubs in Hoboken" and "Hoboken in Print: Hand-Cut Stencil Screen Prints by Ricardo Roig."|
"I Belong" traces the history and cultural significance of the many social, theatrical, athletic, and philanthropic clubs that have knit together the diverse population of Hoboken from the late 1700s through today. It will be on view in the main gallery from July 29 - Dec. 23. Artifacts and articles on these clubs will show how important they were to Hoboken's social fabric, and a section of the exhibit will offer visitors a chance to research new and ongoing clubs in town. During the five-month exhibition, the Museum will host talks by visiting scholars and local historians, as well as engaging educational programs designed for children of all ages.
"Hoboken in Print," features the latest work by local artist Ricardo Roig, who creates intricate, layered screen prints of Hoboken scenes constructed of hand-inked, hand-cut stencils. His work will be on view in the Museum's upper gallery from July 29 - Sept. 9.

Technology used by the Mars Rover robotic vehicles to capture richly detailed images of the red plant has become so affordable that the Museum can now archive its exhibits in online galleries. The Museum is now using GigaPan's robotic mounts and software that enables Collections Manager David Webster to stitch together hundreds of high-resolution digital photos to create panoramic galleries of our exhibitions for patrons to enjoy long after the exhibit closes.
