MORRIS COUNTY — The School of Liberal Arts at County College of Morris (CCM) has launched “quar-ART-ine,” a virtual platform featuring the artistic works of professors and students created during or inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The “quar-ART-ine” website, can be found by clicking here, is designed to feature a wide range of creative works, from poetry and painting, to photography and pottery, to dance and music, to design and more.

“The intent of “quar-ART-ine” is to provide people with some enjoyment during this very difficult time, to highlight the creativity that exists at CCM and to show how our faculty guides students in developing their talents,” says Dr. Margaret Ball, dean of the School of Liberal Arts.

Each week, a different academic program in the School of Liberal Arts will be highlighted on the website and featured on CCM’s Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn accounts. Currently on the site are several poetry readings and poems in recognition of national poetry month that took place in April and videos from professors from a number of creative disciplines.

Upcoming are submissions from the departments of Art and Design, Communication, English and Philosophy, and Music, Performing Arts, and Music Technologies. Check back each week to see what is featured.
