Providing Students with a Larger Audience to View Their Work

The Morris Museum once again is hosting the Fine Art and Design Program Portfolio Exhibition featuring fine art and design work created by students at County College of Morris. This event provides CCM students a venue to display their work to a larger audience outside of the college.

Two students showcase their workThe exhibition, consisting of works produced by students taking the Portfolio and Presentation class through CCM’s Department of Art and Design, runs through April 22. A reception, free and open to the public, will take place Thursday, April 18, from 5 to 7 p.m. The Morris Museum is located at 6 Normandy Heights Road, Morristown.

“Portfolio development is the focus of our programs and an effective portfolio is the calling card of every creative professional,” says Clayton E. Allen, CCM professor of Visual Arts. “Students learn to critique and select their best work to gain invaluable experience installing and exhibiting in a prestigious professional setting. The exhibition at the Morris Museum is a wonderful opportunity for our students to showcase their exceptional creative work.”

On display are a variety of professional portfolio elements such as websites, business cards, PowerPoints, printed books and written documents for the purpose of marketing their work. Students may submit these materials to galleries, museums and prospective clients or use them to transfer to four-year colleges and universities.

The exhibition represents the summation of all of a student’s work from his or her years of creative studies at CCM. For information on the Department of Art and Design at CCM, visit https://www.ccm.edu/academics/divdep/liberal-arts/department-of-art-and-design/.
