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.

PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION PRIOR TO REGISTERING FOR ANY COURSE

Your safety is our priority. Since the pandemic began, we’ve collaborated with medical professionals, invested in building upgrades, and put new procedures in place to protect our guests, staff, volunteers, and faculty. Just a few things you might want to know: All guests 2+ must wear a mask indoors. Faculty and staff are required to be vaccinated. Students 12+ must show proof of vaccination prior to the first in-person session. Arts Education programs are at reduced capacity to allow for safe distancing. And you can feel safe knowing our HVAC system meets industry standards for virus ionization and filtration and our cleaning processes follow all CDC recommendations. Further details on program protocols are here and specific details on procedures are shared upon completed registration and during program orientations.
