Artist, instructor, and Rutgers alumna Patricia Brace practices what she teaches: expanding communal awareness and access to art, through the combined acts of viewing, making, and learning about art.
“As an artist I am committed to building community, contributing to society, and collaborating with other artists and professionals. As a teacher it is important for me to role model these beliefs to my students,” Brace says.
During the spring semester, Brace is the instructor for Passport to Art at the Zimmerli Art Museum on the College Avenue campus of Rutgers New Brunswick. The program, which has been offered for more than 15 years, provides opportunities for families to be creative together. Each workshop begins with an exhibition tour, followed by a project related to an aspect of the artwork on view.
