There can be no doubt that our enthusiasm for The Newark Museum of Art’s Explorers Program is matched tenfold by our Explorers themselves. Since 1995, we have mentored and supported these future leaders and they in turn have filled our galleries and new virtual realms with their passion and purpose.
More than our national awards and recognition from leading funders and our 100% college acceptance rate for graduating seniors, it is the personal journeys of our Explorers that are the true measure of our success.
