Due to COVID-19, the Berrie Center is closed. This fall we are excited to offer a series of virtual events. Please continue to check this page for updates to our schedule.
Leaning Into the Unknown: an Artist’s Response to COVID-19
Do you miss coming to the Berrie Center? Well, the Berrie Center for the Arts is coming to you for free! We are so excited to announce our first LIVESTREAMED event! Our virtual series, Bringing Home Berrie, is presenting Leaning into the Unknown: An Artist Response to COVID-19.
Earlier this year, we sent a call out to NJ based artists to submit new work in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Six artists were selected to develop their pieces for this project and they will be livestreamed on two evening!
Three of the artists’ performances will be livestreamed on our YouTube channel on Saturday, September 19, 2020 at 8:00pm and three on Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 8:00pm. Following the livestream, a live Q&A will take place with the artists. These events are only available on the date and time allocated—just like a live event, make sure you there for “showtime!”
Bringing Home Berrie is our new virtual program series designed to provide you with some exciting conversations and performances featuring Ramapo College faculty, students, alumni, and guest artists. Watch here for additions to our schedule as we announce new videos on our YouTube Channel. All events are free, but we encourage you to think about a gift to the Contemporary Arts Fund or the COVID-19 Student Emergency fund at the Ramapo Foundation at www.ramapo.edu/give
Video 6- Discussing the Impact of Creative Studies on Professional Careers
Professor Ann LePore checks in with Ramapo alumni Alec Barton, Brian Carter and Jake Stephens for a discussion on lessons they learned at Ramapo College from their coursework in animation and where this has taken them professionally.
Because the Theater Program will not be able to produce in-person productions this fall, the faculty collectively has made the following plan. All live events will start at 8pm. All productions will be broadcast using Zoom, Webex or other virtual platform.
We hope to resume our regular production season in the Spring.
