Seven Exciting Exhibits in the New Jersey/Pennsylvania Area

It’s very important for budding artists (and even experienced ones) to seek outside works of creativity for inspiration.  These days, artistic illumination is always around the corner; you can view some of the world’s most famous art without leaving the confines of your home because of a neat little invention: the internet.  But while the Web offers a seemingly endless array of art, it can’t compare to seeing the works up close and personal (besides the “Mona Lisa,” which is very underwhelming in person).

This popular work of art has taken on a larger than life status but is actually only 30 x 20 7/8 inches in size.

There serendipitous nature of attending an exhibition you know little about opens the mind in ways that scrolling through photos of galleries can never match.  Here is a list of seven exciting exhibitions in the area:
