Support Free Educational Art Programs

The Visiting Artist Program was established in 2013 to bring established and emerging professional arts and designers to Brookdale Community College. The program runs eclectic and engaging lectures, workshops, and other events for students and the community in Brookdale’s Center for the Visual Arts Gallery (CVA) throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. As we return from the pandemic back to studios and classrooms, the CVA is working to revive this program to support our students and community. The need has never been greater to engage creatively in and with the community.

We are able to offer these free opportunities to our students and community thanks to the generosity of donors, grants, and corporate sponsors. Please support our work, we welcome and celebrate your donation through the Brookdale Community College Foundation. Contact Margaret Agha, confidential assistant to the Vice President of Advancement, at 732-224-2260 for additional information about your tax-deductible donation, or donate online at the Brookdale Foundation.
