"Camden: Past, Present, and Future," on view now at the Stedman Gallery, shows the creative process behind a mural that spans nearly 700 feet of construction fencing along the Camden waterfront. See selections from the mural's original artwork, created by Camden schoolchildren, as well as work by the professional teaching artists who mentored them: Donna Backues Artist, Doris Nogueira-Rogers, and Cesar Viveros.
The mural was created through a partnership with the Rutgers-Camden Center for the Arts and Liberty Property Trust.
