LINCROFT, NJ (Sept. 28, 2015) – Brookdale Community College employees from nearly every division and discipline will be represented in a new mixed-media arts exhibition opening Oct. 9 in the college’s Center for the Visual Arts (CVA), 765 Newman Springs Road, Lincroft.

The exhibit, titled “We/Re/E-Merge,” is a joint effort by Brookdale faculty, staff and administrators to celebrate the college’s new, more collaborative academic institutes, which were created this year as part of a college-wide reorganization.

Featured works include paintings, sculptures, photos, creative writing, live music and performance art created and performed by Brookdale employees. The gallery will also host a talk by renowned sculptor and former faculty member Thomas Schomberg at 7 p.m. on Oct. 12.

The exhibit is curated by members of Brookdale’s art and English divisions, which now function together as part of the college’s new Humanities Institute.

“Creativity has always been a hallmark of the Brookdale community,” said art professor and co-curator Marie Maber. “This exhibition, like Brookdale’s reorganization, is an opportunity to use our respective talents and come together to create something truly inspiring.”

The exhibition will kick off with a free opening reception on Friday, Oct. 9 from 5 to 8 p.m. in the CVA gallery. Parking is in lots 1 and 2. The show runs through Nov. 18. It is free and open to all. For more information call (732) 224-2743 or email
