Please join us in the Gothic Lounge | Hepburn Hall, Room 202 

followed by a reception in the Lemmerman Gallery | Hepburn Hall, Room 323 

World-renowned artist and NJCU Professor Emerita Ben Jones will be in conversation with Dr. Dennis Raverty, art historian and recently retired NJCU Professor. They will discuss the inspiration behind his art, the social justice he has always advocated for, and how the intersections of his identities have informed his work. The conversation will be moderated by Mercy Villa, NJCU’s PRIDE Center Program Specialist.

This event is co-organized with the Speciher-Rubin Women's Center for Equity and Diversity as part of our Black History Month Celebration.

Info about the Ben Jones Universe and Constellation Exhibits:

This retrospective of the extraordinary artist presents many works—bold, insightful, and in a visual language all his own—that have rarely been exhibited or are on display here for the first time. Come see how Jones’s symbology has transcended global and local issues of ecology, technology, politics, and spirituality, making him the conscience of his generation and of today.

The exhibition and its companion catalog are part of a year-long Mellon Foundation-funded collaboration between William Paterson University and New Jersey City University that is celebrating the American artist Ben Jones—a 1963 graduate of William Paterson and a NJCU professor emeritus of art.
