Suburban Studies High School Photo Exhibition at Gallery Bergen

Keaton Carlisle, Glen Rock High School, “Suburban Sunset”

Bergen Community College Gallery Bergen will present Life in Suburbia, a Suburban Studies High School Photo exhibition, June 12 through June 21.

Responding to the theme Life in Suburbia, students at local New Jersey high schools have contributed photographs from an open call for the second annual Suburban Studies High School Photo Exhibition. Reflections on life in suburbia and explorations of the suburban landscape and lifestyle are some of the topics that students were asked to contemplate when creating their work. Organized by Gallery Director Chris Bors, Life in Suburbia will also feature a video slideshow of images from this year’s and last year’s entries. Opening June 12 with a reception from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, the exhibition continues through June 21.

Over 50 College faculty and administrators from a variety of disciplines have collaborated to form the Suburban Studies Group, chaired by Professor Phil Dolce, a valuable professional development and community engagement undertaking. The educators include the dynamics of suburbia into their coursework and incorporate assignments relating to community outreach and civic lessons. Thousands of students will be participating in this project.

Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. For more information, visit or contact Chris Bors at or 201-879-8817. Bergen Community College Gallery Bergen is located on the college’s main campus, 400 Paramus Road, West Hall 329.
