In commemorating our 60th anniversary, a special interactive display in the gallery will be at the Freyberger Gallery beginning in the summer of 2018.

Called “Transitions”, artist Robbie Pepper has utilized campus photos from the past decade and created life size cut-outs that one can enter and participate in. Perfect for selfies and group photos, this project allows one to transition back in time to our first campus building, which was located in Wyomissing; be part of an early electrical lab; celebrate the symbolic first ground breaking of our current campus; and sit in on a few classes. Activities in the gallery in conjunction with this exhibit will include contests, games, and more challenges.

We welcome Mike Miller, artist for the installation and unveiling of our 60th anniversary permanent mural. Miller, who also teaches in the Wyomissing School District, has created murals throughout West Reading. Miller became interested in murals when he took a tour of them in Philadelphia’s vibrant mural art program. He realized that art could extend to a place beyond personal art. The themes of diversity, growth, and research will be the basis of his work.
