Art in the Atrium, Inc. (ATA) is a non-profit tax-exempt volunteer arts organization that was founded by Charles and Viki Craig in Morristown, New Jersey in 1991. Since its inception, ATA has annually exhibited four floors of African-American fine art at the Atrium Gallery in Morristown, New Jersey, becoming the largest exhibit of its kind in the state. Past exhibits have featured such artists as David Driskell, Willie Cole, Deborah Willis, Benny Andrews, Elizabeth Catlett, Bisa Butler, Janet Taylor Pickett and Faith Ringgold.
ATA awards scholarships to promising visual arts students, curates satellite art exhibits for corporate and government partners and has hosted "Artists in the Schools" programming. In 2001 and again in 2016, the organization was named "Arts Organization of the Year" by Morris Arts.
In 2020, ATA launched an online gallery format at artintheatrium.org and forged a partnership with the Morris Museum, culminating in a 2021 exhibit. Subscribe below to stay in the loop about future exhibit information!
