The Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University will offer a variety of virtual programs this fall as the museum remains closed to the public due to the coronavirus pandemic and in-person programs are suspended until further notice.

The series Saturday Sparks features two art workshops for adults on Zoom. On Oct. 24, join Wes Sherman for “Impression Collage,” which explores techniques for rubbings to capture different textures and forms.

Tom Rutledge presents “Watercolors: At Sea” on Nov. 14, guiding participants in advancing their skills by creating their own interpretations of a nautical scene from the Zimmerli’s collection.

No experience is necessary and all are welcome, but space is limited and sessions ($15 to $40) fill quickly. Participants must provide their own materials; supply lists are provided following registration.

The Zimmerli invites the public to a free virtual screening of “Political Advertisement X: 1952-2020” on Oct. 27.

This 10th iteration of the film series by artists Antoni Muntadas and Marshall Reese surveys presidential campaign commercials and traces the impact of political media. Zoom registration is required at https://go.rutgers.edu/rutgersPAX

Following the screening, the artists will join a discussion moderated by Stuart Shapiro, associate dean of faculty and professor, Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy; and John Weingart, associate director, Eagleton Institute of Politics, and director, Education Programs and Center on the American Governor.
