Art in the Park 2022
Our Art in the Park Festival this year was a success and we couldn't have done it without you! We boasted over 30+ vendors and had over 3,000 attendees. Both days were filled with live music, paint parties, children's art activities, food trucks, park tours, and so much more!
Gallery Opening Receptions
Three new exhibitions opened on Sept 17th at the Arts Center.
My Own Witness: Rupture and Repair by Donna Bassin, Texture in Nature by Susan Zulauf, and Stereotypes in U.S. Popular Culture -- a traveling exhibit from New York University. Our Opening Reception was held in the evening on Saturday, September 24th.
For every exhibition, we host an Opening Reception as an opportunity for people to mingle with others in the artistic community, network, discuss the arts with others, and have the chance to possibly meet the artists in person. To stay updated on when we host our next Opening Receptions and when new exhibits are on view, please subscribe to our e-newsletter.
Teen Arts Festival 2022
The County of Passaic and Passaic County Cultural Heritage Council hosted its first reoccurring Passaic County Teen Arts Festival at PCCC's Wanaque Campus! This one-day festival consisted of workshops hosted by artistic professionals ranging from visual arts to dance and music as well as performances by students.
With a focus this year on performing arts, there was an eclectic mix of student string and wind ensembles, dance groups, and vocal performances. We had over 400 individual students attend with six (6) participating County schools, ranging from Clifton High School to West Milford's Macopin Middle School.
Thank you to all the Directors, Instructors, Program Coordinators, and Students that made this event a success!
