The ongoing pandemic is not stopping the Department of Art and Design at County College of Morris (CCM). Anyone can enjoy the creativity of CCM students through the online Portfolio and Presentation Exhibit. The exhibit includes the work of both fine arts and design students at the college and can be found at There you will find beautiful works of art, along with a virtual walk-through of the college’s gallery.

“While it is unfortunate that the increase in COVID rates now prevents us from showing these works in the college’s gallery, this online option also means people can view the exceptional talent of our students from the comfort of their homes,” notes Todd L. W. Doney, CCM professor of visual arts.

The impressive artwork featured in the exhibit is the culmination of the students’ hard work and creativity while in the Portfolio and Presentation courses at CCM. In those courses, students learn to critique, improve and select their best work. These artists develop skills for writing documents that help market their work to galleries, museums and even prospective clients. Many students develop their portfolios with an end goal of gaining entrance to four-year colleges and universities.
