CAMDEN, NJ.- The Rutgers–Camden Center for the Arts presents an engaging exhibition of artworks and objects collected by individuals living or working in the City of Camden.

The exhibition, “Camden Collects,” is being held from July 7 to Sept. 18 in the Stedman Gallery on the Rutgers–Camden campus.

“I've met many people who live or work in Camden who are avid collectors – individuals who have developed an informed eye or a particular taste for a certain kind of image or object,” says Cyril Reade, director of the Rutgers–Camden Center for the Arts. “The Stedman Gallery's summer exhibition slot is an excellent time to present these collections to the public, when we encourage other visions to be presented in the gallery.”

Collectors include the Honorable Dana L. Redd, mayor of the City of Camden and a graduate of the Rutgers School of Business–Camden; Bert Hubbard, a longtime continuing education student at Rutgers–Camden, and his partner, Christopher Deane; comix fan Robert Emmons, associate director of the Digital Studies Center at Rutgers–Camden; and Cal Maradonna, director of the Learning Abroad program at Rutgers–Camden.

The exhibition also highlights recent additions to Rutgers University–Camden collections by donors John Charles Miller, a 1959 graduate of Rutgers–Camden, and his husband, Robert Bixler; as well as artwork by Olga Moore, a late Rutgers–Camden professor of art, from collections by Joseph Schiavo, associate dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Rutgers–Camden, and Roberta Tarbell, professor emerita of art history. In addition, the exhibit features recently reframed sketches by renowned court artist Richard Tomlinson, presented with accompanying court transcripts.

“The Stedman Gallery only looks for coherence in this collecting passion, asking ‘What is the collector's focus?’” explains Reade. “The public will gain insight to the collector's tastes, but we also expect that these collections will reflect the collector's view of her or his community.”

The Stedman Gallery is located in the Fine Arts Complex on Third Street, between Cooper Street and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, on the Rutgers–Camden campus. For directions to Rutgers–Camden.
