“For our students enrolled in programs involving the arts, the facility provides an opportunity to explore ideas and concepts in the visual arts in a manner we previously could not,” Saatkamp tells AC Weekly.
“It also supports our new Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program. For our liberal arts students who may have limited access to art on our campus, or museums in the area, this facility fills the void.”
Stockton has recently introduced a new Bachelor of the Fine Arts degree, which allows students to pick a specific type of media to focus on, making it more personalized to fit that student’s needs. This is on top of the existing Bachelor of Arts Degree, which concentrates on either art history or interdisciplinary studio art.
The gallery is symbolic of the overall quality that Stockton offers, and ensures that the expansion of the campus — which may even include a facility in Atlantic City — will be successful in its attempt to draw the attention towards the college that it truly deserves.
