Rutgers New Jersey Medical School once again brought the artistic talents of their Health Sciences Campus community into the spotlight during their Fourth Annual NAP Exhibition.  The exhibit not only features 181 pieces of art from 109 artists, but also represents more than 62 different departments.  It’s obvious with such a diverse population participating that Coordinator Noreen Gomez did a tremendous job promoting the show across the campus.  

Even with the unpredictable winter weather, the awards reception was a huge success with a large group in attendance and both Walter L. Douglas, Chief Operating Officer and Bernie Sarrel, Director of Facilities Planning and Management on hand to announce the awards.  Noreen commented that, “it is especially rewarding to witness the artists being recognized for their work and to have their co-workers see what they do outside of the workplace.” 

As Noreen has been the coordinator for all four years, she has also been able to see the positive effects the NAP exhibit has on the participant’s first-hand.  Over the years, she has seen a number of artists who enter each year, not only move up in category, but receive continued confirmation of their artistic talents.  Six of these such participants were presented ribbons at this year’s awards reception.  

The exhibit, which is currently up, runs through April 22nd at the Rutgers Health Sciences Campus at Newark.  If you’re in the area, stop by and check out all the creative talents on display.
