University’s Print Club from artists that include John Taylor Arms,

History,"

a show celebrating 18,000 photographs taken by the Princeton Packet’s

photographers and donated to the Historical Society’s permanent

collection.

The collection documents more than 25 years of development, sprawl,

historic preservation, education, celebrations, and festival, with

images of Princeton’s Latino population, Asian Indians, Southeast

Asians, and Chinese Americans.

HomeFront, 182 Nassau Street, 609-989-9417. "Shona

Stone Sculpture of Zimbabwe," the annual show and sale to benefit

area homeless families opens. Over 600 works are on exhibit and

future exhibits uncertain. The show continues through June 17.

When Zimbabwe (formerly called Rhodesia) gained its independence in

1980, it named itself Zimbabwe or "house of stone," for its

carving tradition that dates back to the still-standing Great Zimbabwe

stone enclosures of the 10th and 11th centuries. New York’s Museum

of Modern Art brought the first exhibit of the stone sculpture of

Zimbabwe to this country in 1968.

This year’s exhibit highlights Robert Kwechete’s "Kudu Family"

carved from black iron serpentine, Isaac Chaya’s "Loving

Family"

in kwekwe serpentine, and Raymond Chirambadare’s massive piece

"Let

Me Think."
