WE DECLARE Opening Reception

October 12, 2023 | 5 PM to 8 PM

Meet Ricardo Roig, Kean University Alumnus, contemporary fine artist, and the Galleries 2023-2024 Artist-in-Residence!

Roig takes viewers on a journey through history with a large-scale mural, WE DECLARE, honoring the 75th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, celebrating many historical figures, honorary and active members of the Kean community, and advocates who have worked to make New Jersey a leader in human rights.

See the faces, hear the stories, connect with Roig, and celebrate those who champion human rights…rights inherent to all human beings, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status.


Refreshments provided. Complimentary parking is available in the Visitors Lot located next to Kean Hall (google maps location: Kean University Administration Building).
