A public exhibit of world renowned photographer Mark Weiss and his collaboration with artist Steve Lacy, who is an anchor on Fox 5 in NYC, will take place on Friday, November 8 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday, November 9 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Monday, November 11 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the CVA Gallery on Brookdale’s campus. A portion of the proceeds from the sales will support Rockit’s scholarship fund and creation of a dedicated space on Brookdale’s campus for Rockit’s programs.

Collectively known as  Weissguy n’ Lacy, the photographer and artist blend artistic mediums to create  signature, one-of-a-kind screen-printed canvas artworks reminiscent of Andy Warhol’s pop art images, drawing upon Weiss’s vast archives of photos from chronicling the careers of leading rock ‘n roll artists.

“I am very excited to donate our art to Brookdale Community College and the Rockit Academy, and I look forward to seeing the expansion and sharing of music education in our community.”

“I am very excited to donate our art to Brookdale Community College and the Rockit Academy, and I  look forward to seeing the expansion and sharing of music education in our community,” said Weiss, a Monmouth County resident.  “I am amazed at the talent and professionalism that these young rockers enthusiastically bring to the community, and I am proud to be a part of their team, capturing true rock stars in the making.”

“The very essence of my collaboration with Mark is learning from those who came before you and being generous when it comes to passing on your skills to the next generation,” said Lacy. “That’s what makes our affiliation with Rockit Academy and Brookdale Community College such a perfect fit. We couldn’t be more proud to be associated with both of these organizations.”
