As of January 2008, at the request of the County Administrator’s Office and the Board of Chosen Freeholders, Morris Arts assumed oversight for planning exhibitions at the Atrium Art Gallery, housed in the Morris County Administration & Records Building on Court Street in Morristown. Located on Floors 2-5 of the County’s Administration and Records Building, the Atrium Gallery offers 4-5 exhibits per year which showcase works in varied media by a wide variety of artists including African-American artists, high school students throughout the county (in a professionally juried show), emerging and established individual professional artists, artists with disabilities, Latin American artists, and member artists of various art associations within the county. The Gallery also includes a unique, multi-story open Atrium stairwell area which has allowed the inclusion of unusual art installations such as large mobiles, banners, quilts, and the like.
Most of the artwork is available for sale. Free catalogues, in both standard and LARGE PRINT versions (with information on the artists and the works on display) are available to the public in the elevator lobby of each floor and on tables in the seating area on the fifth floor. The Atrium Gallery is located in the Morris County Administration and Records Building on 12 Court Street, Morristown. The exhibit is free and open to the public during business hours, Mondays-Fridays from 8:30am-4:30pm. For more information, contact Dr. Lynn L. Siebert at Lsiebert@morrisarts.org or by phone at (973) 285-5115, ext. 10.
