Gillett G. Griffin was an art curator, collector, writer, artist and teacher, who for more than a half a century lived and worked in Princeton; he was also a personal friend of physicist Albert Einstein. Prior to his death in 2016, Griffin, curator emeritus of Pre-Columbian and Native American art at the Princeton University Art Museum, made a significant gift to the Historical Society of Princeton of more than 50 pieces of material related to Einstein.

Stephanie Schwartz, Curator of Collections and Research, will give an introduction to the Historical Society's Gillett Griffin Collection of Albert Einstein Ephemera, sharing several drawings of Einstein sketched by Griffin himself. The artwork will provide the inspiration for a live portrait drawing session, led by teaching artist Barbara DiLorenzo.

Tickets are priced as "Pay What You Can." Program will be presented via Zoom; access link will be sent to the e-mail provided within 2 days of registration. Please contact Eve Mandel (eve@princetonhistory.org) with any questions.
