The Rutgers–Camden Center for the Arts‘ new exhibition, “Democratic Vistas: Whitman, Body, and Soul” opens May 29 at 5 p.m. as part of a larger regional program, “Whitman at 200: Art and Democracy,” which celebrates the 200th anniversary of Walt Whitman’s birth. The exhibit will feature artwork from artists such as Caroline Carlsmith, Paul Cava, John Giannotti, and others. Much of the work featured in the exhibit expresses the importance of place and rootedness, drawing on Whitman’s 19 years spent in Camden.  

The exhibit is open until December 7 and is on view in the Stedman Gallery, from Monday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. This is a free exhibit and open to all.
