Zimmerli Art Museum Opens 'Pop' Hart Exhibit Today
by BWW News Desk - Sep 1, 2015

New Brunswick, NJ – Enjoy a virtual adventure with George Overbury “Pop” Hart, whose diverse travel experiences captured scenes of daily life in locales where few tourists ventured during the early part of the 20th century. While most American artists visited Europe to perfect their drawing and painting skills or to pursue styles inspired by avant-garde artists, Hart preferred extended trips abroad to more exotic – and affordable – destinations. Crisscrossing the globe between his first expedition to Latin America starting in 1900 and his last trips to North Africa and Cuba some 30 years later, these excursions were the primary source for his art throughout his career. Vagabond Artist: “Pop” Hart in Tahiti, Mexico, and the Caribbean, on view today, September 1, 2015, to February 8, 2016, spotlights more than 40 watercolors, drawings, and prints.

Spoiler Alert! Recap and Review: THE VOICE Battle Rounds Night One 10/13; Full Results and Pictures!
by Matt Tamanini - Oct 13, 2014

Well, tonight is the night when I generally begin to lose interest in NBC's juggernaut singing competition THE VOICE. As we transition from the ever compelling Blind Auditions to the generally disappointing Battle Rounds, it always annoys me that so much time and attention is focused on the coaches and the guest mentors. Yes, I love the fact that the singers are getting expert tutelage, but the show's attention should be, you know, on the contestants. While this is the only area where THE VOICE doesn't rise to the level of AMERICAN IDOL, for me, it has often been a deal breaker. I never feel the connection to THE VOICE contestants that I do to those on IDOL. Hopefully now that I am reviewing every single performance, I will actually get invested in some of the singers.
