Faculty artists at Borough of Manhattan Community College/The City University of New York (BMCC/CUNY) will showcase their work in an upcoming exhibit, Art/Works, opening Wednesday, February 10 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the Shirley Fiterman Art Center, located on the first floor of BMCC’s Fiterman Hall, 81 Barclay Street between Greenwich Street and West Broadway in Lower Manhattan. The exhibit will run through March 19.

Featured faculty artists and designers in Art/Works include Yevgeniya Baras, Aisha Tandiwe Bell, Tess Bilhartz, Lynn Braswell, Simon Carr, Betty A. Copeland, Elisa Decker, Donelle Estey, Dikko Faust, Pat Genova, John Goodrich, Xico Greenwald, Joseph Haske, Sarah Haviland, Ann Hjelle, Ana Garces Kiley, Michael Leigh, Susan Leopold, Charles McGill, Thaddeus Radell, Jessica Ramirez, William Reed, Kimberly Reinhardt/Analog Exodus, Judy Richardson, Owen Roberts, Erik Saxon, Adele Shtern, Rachelle Street, Janet Esquirol Sylvan, Joan Thorne, A.C. Towery, Michael Volonakis and Amy Westpfahl.

Art/Works provides a glimpse of the dynamic, diverse faculty who teach in BMCC’s new Art Foundations program. Students are now able to earn an Associate of Art (A.A.) in Art History or Associate of Science (A.S.) in Studio Art. Both programs link to the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Art History program at Queens College, CUNY.

BMCC’s faculty artists teach a wide range of courses in studio art, design and art history. They guide students in building portfolios of their work and provide them with the fundamental training required for successful transfer to top art and design schools.

A portion of all sales of art from Shirley Fiterman Art Center exhibits goes to support the BMCC Foundation scholarship fund.
