Virtual Exhibits

AENJ 2020 – 2021 Virtual Art Exhibit

For the past decade, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center has been committed to displaying a rotating year-long exhibition of student artwork, curated by our great partners at the Art Educators of New Jersey (AENJ) in the lobby of the Victoria Theater.

Though we are socially distanced at this time, NJPAC is proud to continue celebrating student creativity and joy as we virtually present the AENJ 2021 Spring Art Exhibition.
