Curious about what today’s design students are creating and how they are putting their learning into action? The Design Student Portfolio Exhibit at County College of Morris (CCM) features the work of more than 20 students and can be viewed both online and in-person.

The exhibit will be on view in the CCM Art & Design Gallery from April 16 – April 29 and online at www.ccm.edu/2021-design-exhibition/. The exhibit will conclude with a reception, free and open to the public, on Thursday, April 29, from 6 – 8 p.m. Everyone who comes to campus is required to wear a mask and practice social distancing, and the college is following state capacity guidelines. The gallery is located in the Sherman H. Masten Learning Resource Center (LRC) on CCM’s campus, 214 Center Grove Road, Randolph.

“The Design Portfolio course at CCM focuses on preparing students as professionals, as it also prepares them to transfer to four-institutions to earn a bachelor’s degree if that is their goal,” says Professor Kelly Whalen, who oversees the program. “Students are involved in critiquing, enhancing and selecting work that contributes to a strong portfolio and presentation. It’s always such a pleasure to see how their skills and talent evolve and the work they produce.”
