Burlington County College (BCC) art students show off their artwork at the mini arts space, which serves as a hub for a garden of native perennials at the Pemberton Township campus. Working on the project (from left) are Kirsten Lim-Chua, Audie Pemiciaro and Kimberly Rosenkranz.

BCC Sustainability Garden

Burlington County College (BCC) unveiled an innovative new project that merges art and science with the dedication of “Habitat for Artists: A BCC Sustainability Project.”

BCC collaborated on the project with Simon Draper, a New York artist who was recently featured in the New York Times and profiled in numerous national art publications for his work “Habitat for Artists.” Originally, Draper constructed free mini studio spaces for artists in vacant lots in lower Manhattan when studio space became unaffordable. Today, art groups collaborate with Draper to create variations on his project’s original theme.

BCC plans to offer exhibitions and workshops on art and the natural sciences, such as botanical drawing studies, to students in K-12. The workshops will be taught by guest artists including Draper and regional artists whose work features the pinelands.
