Student Exhibitions | Montclair Art Museum
(MAM) & Yard School of Art offer American, Native American, & contemporary art exhibitions, programs, & classes in NJ

Art School Arcade


The MAM Yard School of Art is pleased to be able to offer our students the opportunity to show their artwork in a professional gallery space. Our shows highlight the diverse range of media and techniques practiced by our students and faculty at the Yard School. The shows, which rotate approximately every six weeks, allow our students to experience the process of preparing a work for exhibition, and are also an excellent way to showcase their talent, as well as the abilities of our seasoned instructors. Additionally, our shows provide prospective students the chance to check out a variety of the Yard School’s class offerings, and the types of artwork that are produced. Receptions for these shows are open to the public.
The Art School Arcade is located on the 1st floor of the Museum.
The Art School Arcade Gallery is a gift of William and Judith Turner.



Children's Arcade


Exhibitions in the Children’s Arcade highlight the work of our school programs and educational partnerships. Many of the exhibitions are the culmination of multiple visits to the Museum for tours and hands-on art-making experiences and complement the MAM’s permanent collection and special exhibitions. The student exhibitions and opening receptions provide a professional and festive culmination to the student’s museum experience.


The Children's Arcade is located on the 1st floor of the Museum.


Special thanks to Patricia Bell and Douglas A. Keller, Jr., for their support of the Museum’s Children’s Arcade Gallery exhibitions. The Children’s Arcade Gallery is a gift of the Plofker Family Foundation.
