The New Brunswick Free Public Library presents a special exhibit from the Crossroads Theatre and New Brunswick Historical Society collections celebrating the life and work of the late photographer Harry Rubel, a lifetime resident of central Jersey and active participant for many years in the New Brunswick cultural scene. Rubel (1914-2007) spent much of his life in New Brunswick and the surrounding area, photographing the streets of New Brunswick, the Delaware and Raritan Canal, and working as the photographer for the Crossroads Theatre. Join us in exploring a long and illustrious career that spanned decades and transformed numerous times, from portrait studio photography to award-winning landscapes to color prints and collage. This collection is a testament to a creative process that never stagnated or stopped but was always evolving, and any lover of photography will find something to appreciate among the vast array of techniques and subject matter that Harry Rubel explored in his works.
Funding in part has been provided by the Middlesex County Cultural and Heritage Commission, Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders, and the New Jersey Historical Commission/Department of State.
