Fresh Perspectives

August 21, 2020 – November 23, 2020
Virtual Exhibition 

This juried exhibition began in 1989 as an outlet for artistically accomplished New Jersey high school students to express their curiosity and creativity. Now in its 31st year, the Morris Museum is proud to once again share the superb work of photography, painting, drawing, sculpture and video, by New Jersey’s most talented young artists.

There were 376 works submitted from 52 schools in 10 counties across the state. The 50 works were selected for this exhibition by jurors Danielle Bursk, Director of Artist Services at the NJ State Council on the Arts, and Lisa Suss, professional artist and Visual Arts Manager for the JCC Metrowest.
