Triumph for Rutgers New Jersey Medical School's Third Exhibit

“Catharsis” Robert Binder; Intermediate; Sculpture Employee, Rutgers School of Dental Medicine

This year’s National Arts Program® Exhibit brought together 120 talented artists from Rutgers New Jersey Medical School (formally the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey). While the exhibit is only in its third year with the program, it is a great example of how momentum can build when the show is held annually.  Coordinator Noreen Gomez commented that, “people really understood what the show was about this year and were thrilled to participate.”

Noreen, who has been coordinating the exhibit since joining the program, did another tremendous job organizing the annual event. Along the way, she kept in touch with the NAP staff to brainstorm different ways she could reach potential new participants making sure that everyone was aware of the program and had an opportunity to take part. It’s clear that all of Noreen’s hard work leading up to the show paid off with a great display of artwork that included work from 87 first-time participants!

The exhibit is on display at the New Jersey Medical School until April 23rd; however, if you are not able to visit the show in person, you can virtually view the artwork on the New Jersey Medical School's Flickr page.
