âWake Up Genius Speciesâ Features the Work of Two New Jersey Artists
The start of a new year is a good time to consider what is most important in life. Viewers at the âWake Up Genius Speciesâ exhibit at the County College of Morris (CCM) Art Gallery are presented with that opportunity as they view the work of two New Jersey artists, Timothy Simmons and Maria Sinatra.
âThe exhibit asks viewers to analyze one simple question: Whatis important to them,â says Professor of Art & Design Brian Sahotsky, gallery director. âWhether their answer is family, the environment, self-care or social justice, âWake Up Genies Speciesâ encourages viewers to take a step back, think critically and welcome the varying viewpoints of others.â
The exhibit, which runs through February 24, experiments with works in different mediums and scale to provide viewers with ever-changing ways to look at core issues affecting humanity.
The Art Gallery is located in the Sherman H. Masten Learning Resource Center on CCMâs campus, 214 Center Grove Road, Randolph. Everyone who comes to campus is required to wear a mask indoors and practice social distancing. Visitors are asked to first stop by the Public Safety department, near Parking Lot 10, to obtain a visitorâs pass.
Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. â 6 p.m.
