Montclair State University’s George Segal Gallery received a Citation of Excellence from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts (NJSCA) for excellence in artistic quality, programming and public service in the arts. To present the Citation and acknowledge the importance of the work of Segal Gallery, State Arts Council leadership was joined by Secretary of State Nina Mitchell Wells and members of the New Jersey State Legislature at the State House Annex on March 13, 2008.

“Citations of Excellence conferred by the Council are a signal to funders, audiences, peers and others that these organizations and projects are among the very best in our state,” noted Carol Ann Herbert, chair of the State Arts Council.

This award, among the State Arts Council’s most prestigious marks of distinction, is conferred to grant applicants receiving the highest peer panel evaluation through the grant application process.
