About the Center for Chinese Art

The Center for Chinese Art at William Paterson was established on September 9, 2009, to cultivate a deeper understanding of Chinese art and culture. The Center, funded by generous contributions from Margaret Lam and David Yen, will introduce Chinese culture and art to University students, faculty, and staff, as well as to the off-campus community, through Chinese art studio and history courses, symposiums, art exhibitions, and visiting artist and study abroad programs.
