The Nilson Gallery features the work of New Jersey artists, including the New Jersey Emerging Artists Series, a unique and exciting forum for NJ artists who have never had a one-person show of their work in our State. The artists selected for this Series represent the diversity of talent in the State and demonstrate their creativity in a wide variety of media. Gallery talks scheduled during the exhibitions offer artists the opportunity to share insights on their work.

Visit Stella The Stegosaurus!

Visit a large Stegosaurus, the dinosaur sculpture on permanent display in the Museum’s patio garden. Artist Jim Gary (March 17, 1939 – January 14, 2006) was a self-taught metal sculptor best known for his large whimsical creations of dinosaurs assembled from discarded automobile parts. Welded by hand and painted in vivid colors, Gary’s sculptures are almost life-size, and each is stegosaurus comprised of hundreds of car parts – he used as many as eight to ten automobiles to build a single dinosaur.
