All the art currently
owned by our museum, were photographed in high resolution for a future
catalog of the BMAS Collection and for creating a section on our web
site dedicated to this collection which will feature all the images,
titles and artists of our permanent collection. In addition, 30 or
selected works from our collection were chosen by Bergen Community
College Department of Visual Arts for an upcoming exhibit featuring
the "Personal Collection of the Bergen Museum of Art & Science"
sometime in mid 2014 at the college's new art gallery.
The museum is looking to place our mural by Stefan Knapp (see above
photo, right) on a building large enough to display this famous
mural which originally was on the side of Alexander's building on
Route4 in Paramus. We are looking at potential buildings within the
new Dream Mall that is coming soon to the Meadowlands.This mural was highlighted in a recent issue of
New Jersey magazine and is valued at over $1,000,000. The mural was
highlighted recently in the
Bergen Record and again in

Recently featured artist:
Recent Past Activities
sculptor, Jim Gary, has lived and worked in New Jersey all of
his life. He grew up in Colts Neck and has always remained based in
central Jersey -- but the world became his market. Part of the
Bergen Museum collection included Mr. Gary's sculpture “road
runner”. His work is represented in the collections of many
corporate, institutional, and private collections.
Jim Gary has been featured on a myriad of domestic television
programs -- by Walter Cronkite, Public Broadcasting, Christopher
Reeves, the California Academy of Sciences, and many others.
Jim Gary is the recipient of numerous awards, including the N.J.
Governor's "Pioneer Award" and the New Jersey Educators Association
"Art Educator of the Year" on two different occasions.
What makes this dynamic artist so different? For one thing, he's a
"self made" artist who overcame his early indifference to education.
He shares with others his experiences on the journey from street
artist to world class traveling museum exhibitor. He challenges his
audience to 'see' things differently, to think and use the
imagination and most importantly perseverance. For more information,
