October sees a series of events at The Visual Arts Center of New Jersey related to fall exhibitions and in honor of Arts & Humanities month. Several of the programs will examine racial issues in the Garden State.

A recipient of a grant award from the New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH), the exhibition Casey Ruble: Everything That Rises features a series of small-scale paper collages, depicting two types of sites in New Jersey: former safe houses on the Underground Railroad, and locations where race riots have broken out.

The NJCH’s Executive Director, Dr. Briann Greenfield, and Chair Linda Morgan were in attendance at the exhibition opening on along with Congressman Leonard Lance. The exhibition is on view through January 17.
