Cyril Reade, Ph.D., director of the Rutgers–Camden Center for the Arts (RCCA), has unveiled the work of six artists with deep personal and professional ties to the city of Camden in the exhibition “Portraits of Camden.” The art display runs until Dec. 10 in the Stedman Gallery on the Rutgers University–Camden campus

The exhibition, which is supported by a $25,000 National Endowment for the Arts award, expresses the strength and resilience of Camden residents in unique ways using a wide variety of media – from drawing and painting to video and installation. 

“The six artists created works that capture the spirit of Camden’s people and the dynamic trajectory that is moving the city forward,” Reade said. The RCCA exhibition in the latest in a series of art installation focused on the city of Camden, including series of exhibitions with a focus on Camden, following “Visions of Camden” (2013), “Sounds of Camden” (2014), and “Picturing Camden” (2017).
