The Bergen Museum of Art & Science is proud to announce that we are the recent recipients of a Puffin Foundation Grant for the Arts.  Once again, we want to thank the Puffin Foundation for making this possible.      

We will soon have some images of our paintings and sculptures from our private collection. These will be displayed in a newly designed section of our web site. Stay tuned... 

. Site will be revised shortly in Wordpress.com. Preview:-> BMAS Gallery

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 more 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 201 Magazine

Real estate developers or building owners in Bergen Country or North Jersey that are interested in presenting modern and classical art and cultural ideas to the community and could benefit by having such a masterpiece as a visual 'advertisement', please contact Dr. James Waldron .

Apart from exhibiting paintings and sculptures, we plan to have student art classes, summer art camp, science & math camp, chess classes, etc,. We will also showcase our Mastodon collection and our large collection of paintings, drawings and sculptures.

We now have a new Board of Directors including a new President and Chairman of the Board, Dr. James Waldron. As stated previously, we are currently looking to expand our Board of Directors and are seeking highly qualified candidates to fulfill some of our vacant positions, including a new curator. We recently added, Anne Marie Ayala-secretary, Magdalena Nemesh-Art Director/Curator. Marc Hajjar-Art Historian and Lisa Feorenzo-Marketing and Public Relations to our board.

 Road Runner

Renowned 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, visit his official web site:

  Stefan Knapp is best known for his vibrant enamel murals which can be seen in a large number of museums and public buildings throughout the world. The Bergen Museum plans to display his work soon in Bergen County.

Stefan Knapp was a 20th century artist with great vision, a keen sense of color and design, and an innovator driven with boundless energy.  He broke traditional boundaries and took the medium of enameling on metal to places it had never been before, and to some extent, since.  His enameled mural (above) for Alexander's Department store in Paramus, New Jersey was considered the world's largest painting in 1960.  Imagine an enamel mural 200 feel long and 50 feel high!  Few artists have impacted the medium of enameling on metal as Stefan Knapp did.
Knapp is pictured above  creating the famous "Alexander" mural in an airplane hanger in England.
