A Statement By Dee Rincón, Marisa’s Mother, September 2017

Often, people remarked about Marisa’s beautiful face and hair. “Oh, those green eyes and smile would melt anyone’s heart!” However, Marisa preferred being recognized for her intelligence and artistic talent. Few people knew that she was well read and an articulate writer.

She chose a liberal path. She believed in equality for women’s rights both personally and professionally. Marisa was a feminine, soft-spoken, kind and gentle soul who touched the hearts of many. Although private and reserved, people enjoyed her sense of humor. Marisa liked to read in solitude and play her ukulele. Pop Rock music, her pet hamster and cat, and nature brought her joy.

Marisa Victoria Rincón struggled with anxiety and depression. On February 21,2017, died by suicide in Randolph, NJ. Marisa’s life was as rich and colorful as her accomplished artwork. She was passionate about the art world and its creativity.

Marisa’s legacy: “We are born with innate talents, and those gifts MUST be expressed and shared in order to be happy.”

It is the hope of the Rincón family that this art exhibit helps those struggling with mental health to seek help from your physician, the County College of Morris, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. We believe that is Marisa’s voice, too.

To read more about Marisa Rincón, written by her mother and family, go to www.ccm.edu/pdf/Marisa-Write-up-art-bio-2017.pdf/.

A second art exhibit featuring the work of CCM professors from the Photography Program, titled “Photography Program Faculty Exhibition,” will be held in Gallery A, from Aug. 29 to Oct. 13.

 

There will be two receptions for the exhibits:

The first reception, cosponsored by the Art and Design and Counseling and Student Success departments, will be held 12:30 to 1:45 p.m. on Tuesday, September 12.

The second reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 14.

The CCM Art and Design Gallery is located in the Sherman H. Masten Learning Resource Center on CCM’s Randolph campus, 214 Center Grove Road.
