BCC is proud to serve as a community hub and resource for the creative and performing arts. While making a commitment to technology, the College has also committed resources to the aesthetics of its campuses and the diversity of its cultural programming. This balance of technology and artistry provides an exciting teaching and learning environment for BCC's enrolled students and community at large.
Permanent Art Collection
In an effort to make art more accessible, BCC is proud to provide a diverse collection of permanent art on the Pemberton Campus. The Collection provides the viewer with an eclectic experience of line, color, form and composition. Ranging from the primitive to the contemporary, from the representational to the abstract, works in the Collection are executed in graphite, ink, watercolor, and oils, as well as the fine art printing processes of lithography and serigraphy. Sculptural studies are interpreted with wood, metals and electric light. The College also displays artifacts from the Pinelands region, historic maps, quilts and drawings.
The collection was originally displayed on the Pemberton Campus in 1985. Since that time, new pieces have been added and the works have distributed through out the campus. Works may be viewed at the Campus' original building the Lewis Parker Center and also the Academic Center and William K. McDaniel Integrated Learning Resource Center. The Collection is, in a large part, the result of the generosity of former student government associations and friends of Burlington County College. The two-dimensional and three-dimensional works of art enrich the collegiate environment and offer inspiration to artists studying at the College.
The Student Gallery is located in the Mount Holly Center, in the heart of Mount Holly's Historic Downtown District, is the place for young artists and entrepreneurs to learn how things work in the "real" world. In an effort to bring business students and artists together, BCC opened a student run gallery. The Student Gallery serves as both a showcase to display and sell original works of art. The Gallery features "themed" shows featuring art pieces created by students and professional artists every few weeks.

Art in the Environment
Burlington County College’s Student Gallery features a special exhibit entitled, Art in the Environment. The exhibit presents two featured artists, Carol Woodin from the American Society of Botanical Artists and Michael Gallagher from Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. A “meet the artists” is planned for the exhibit’s opening reception. Art in the Environment at BCC’s Student Gallery provides the community access to an exhibit that promotes their local region’s environment through art, as well as an opportunity to interact with the featured artists. The focus of the exhibit is on the appreciation of the natural environment as seen through the various mediums of art.
Campus Sculpture Garden
Located on the grounds of Burlington County Colleges Pemberton Campus is a unique collection of outdoor sculpture. In its 21st year, this garden of steel, bronze and stone has helped to define and enrich the Colleges environment and inspire those who view it. The exhibition transitions annually as a result of a juried competition. Selected works remain on view for a minimum of one year (or longer at the discretion of the artist). The Sculpture Garden is made possible through the generous support of the Burlington County College, the Burlington County College Foundation, and funding made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts from a grant to the Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders, Department of Resource Conservation, Division of Cultural Affairs & Tourism.
