Learn, Teach, Create: Repeat

Zimmerli Art Museum

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.

Rutgers Alumni Take On Disney After On-Campus Hospitality Experience

Ramon Lucas, Rutgers graduate and former resident assistant at the Rutgers University Inn & Conference Center

Working at the Rutgers Inn and Conference Center primed pair for competitive internship program

Jaelynn Vizzi left for the Disney College Program just after Labor Day with her brand new Rutgers communications degree in hand.

Ramon Lucas, a 2013 Rutgers mathematics graduate, is already two years into his career at The Walt Disney Company after participating in the same Disney internship Vizzi just started.

Both individuals gained a world of experience on campus by serving people of diverse languages and cultures as resident coordinators at the Rutgers University Inn and Conference Center (RUICC).

Working at the RUICC taught Vizzi how to help others overcome language barriers and acclimate to different cultures – a must since the inn drew guests from more than 42 countries in 2015. The experience primed Lucas and Vizzi for their four-month Disney internships.
