Community Arts Engagement On and Off Campus

Dr. Garrett Hope from the music department is working in collaboration with the Berman Musuem of Art to bring nearly 300 7th graders from Perkiomen Valley Middle School East to campus. This collaboration is funded by a Target grant written by Susan Shifrin, previous Associate Director for Education at the Berman Museum of Art. The students will travel to campus to engage with Dr. Hope’s collaborative art exhibit, “Diary of the One Swelling Sea.” Dr. Hope is also acting as an artist-in-residence at the middle school, where he works with the students in developing collaborative and meaningful projects.
