Show Rutgers Today.

What’s life like for you at Rutgers today? Let your photos do the talking. The Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum wants to capture the spaces and places of your experience at the university during its 250th anniversary that weave a visual tapestry of academic and campus life in New Brunswick, Newark, and Camden.

Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and visitors can upload photographs at The shots become part of HereNow: Rutgers 250, an exhibition through July 2016 in the Zimmerli’s main gallery. Later, the 250 most compelling photographs will be published in a fine arts book following the closing of the exhibition in the fall.

Just add the hashtag #Rutgers250 to your post, and we’ll find them and share them. (Mind you, we will not be able to view items in private accounts on social media.) If you are not on social media, submit your story using the short form available at
