FOUR COLLEGES: A STUDENT/FACULTY ART EXHIBITION
Through November 20, 2016
Four Colleges brings students and faculty from County College of Morris, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Drew University and College of Saint Elizabeth together to showcase the talent right here in our own backyard. The intention is to probe an artist’s sphere of influence. What are the significant influences on an artist? How does an art teacher influence a student’s work? Can we see it in a student’s work? By showcasing these four schools we celebrate and bring together the creative resources in our community with the hope of forging new opportunities.

ICONS OF AMERICAN CULTURE:
HISTORY OF NEW JERSEY DINERS
Through December 31, 2016
When was the last time you ate at a diner? If you are like millions in New Jersey, the answer is not too long ago. Dubbed “the land of diners,” New Jersey’s highways and main streets are dotted with silver airstreams and neon signs of the classic American diner. Moreover, New Jersey was and still is the diner manufacturing industry’s hub. This exhibition explores the rich history of the Garden State’s favorite casual eatery through classic photographs and historical artifacts.
The exhibition was organized by the Middlesex County Museum/Cornelius Low House.
