Reception, Open to the Public, to be Held December 15

ccmThe Morris Museum is once again hosting the Portfolio Exhibit of design and fine art pieces created by students at County College of Morris.

The exhibition, consisting of works produced by students taking Portfolio classes through CCM’s Department of Art and Design, runs through Thursday, Dec. 15, with a closing reception also being held that day. The reception, free and open to the public, takes place from 5-7 p.m. The museum is located at 6 Normandy Heights Road, in Morris Township.

This is the fourth year that the museum is hosting the Portfolio Exhibit to provide CCM students with a larger audience to view their work.

Students from the Portfolio classes at County College of Morris work on setting up their exhibition at the Morris Museum.

Students from the Portfolio classes at CCMorris set up their exhibition at the Morris Museum.

“Portfolio courses at CCM help students to critique, improve and select their best work; create effective presentations; write documents for marketing their creative work to galleries, museums and prospective clients; and develop portfolios to gain entrance to four-year colleges and universities,” said Todd L. W. Doney, CCM professor of visual arts.

“Having their work on exhibit at the Morris Museum also is a wonderful opportunity for our students to showcase their work.”

The exhibition represents the summation of all of a student’s work from his or her creative studies at CCM. For information on the Department of Art and Design at CCM, visit www.ccm.edu/academics/divdep/liberalarts/artdesign/.
