Longtime Sculpture Teacher Is Subject of Screening

Bob Jenkins

Bob Jenkins: In His Own Words, a short film about the life of the Princeton resident and sculptor who taught children for many years at the Arts Council of Princeton, will be shown on Tuesday, September 26, at 6:30 p.m., in the Community Room of Princeton Public Library.

The screening will be followed by a reception attended by Jenkins, who is 92, and filmmaker and Princeton resident Krysia Kolodziej. During the reception, there will be a Q&A session where Jenkins will talk about his life and Kolodziej will discuss the making of the film. There will also be a scavenger hunt where children will look for the library’s “Cheetah” sculpture created by Jenkins. Light refreshments will be served.

Jenkins arrived in Princeton from New York City in 1991. He began teaching clay and paper mache sculpture to children at the Arts Council of Princeton in 1993.
