As of today, I have retired from Montclair State University, and new content for The Creative Research Center is suspended until further notice.
However, and this is a big “however,” after a more than a decade of virtual dedication to the dynamic imagination of the University community and beyond, the riches of The Creative Research Center as an institution remain open and accessible to all.
In addition to the digital archive, by Deed of Gift, the complete paper & notebook-based analog record of The Creative Research Center will be housed in perpetuity in the Harry A. Sprague Library Archives and Special Collections on the MSU campus.
And so: To new arrivals at this Web site, I urge you to carry forward! Range and “click” widely here to your heart’s content. Your curiosity and intrigue will be well-satisfied.
To the CRC’s multitude of old friends, students, faculty, neighbors, & collaborators – thanks for the essays, blogs, pictures, and ideas. You are welcome back any time.
Farewell thanks to Dean Daniel Gurskis and his administrative colleagues, who supported The Creative Research Center so generously. And last, but certainly not least, my nostalgic gratitude to MSU College of the Arts Emeritus Dean Geoffrey Newman, who offered me this “box to think outside of,” long ago, with a handshake and a knowing smile.
