Join Aberbach for a guided tour of the current exhibition Object Lessons in American Art: Selections from the Princeton University Art Museum which features work organized into twenty groups each intended to raise timely questions and provoke considerations about American history and culture. The overarching themes focus particularly on race, gender, and the environment, illustrating how fresh juxtapositions can uncover new meaning.
