A non-profit volunteer arts organization, Art in the Atrium (ATA) has championed Black art excellence since its inception nearly three decades ago and has proudly exhibited fine art from the African diaspora at the Atrium Gallery (working with Morris Arts) and at other venues throughout northern New Jersey.
Its annual exhibition, the largest of its kind in the state of New Jersey, has been a successful showcase of art by emerging and established artists. In 2001 and again in 2016, the organization was named “Arts Organization of the Year” by Morris Arts. ATA annually awards a scholarship to a promising visual arts student. In 2020, ATA pivoted to an online art gallery to support ATA’s mission and raise funds to support the scholarship program. In the first week of the virtual art show, ATA made an astounding $20,000 in art sales. The virtual art gallery is viewable at artintheatrium.org.
