Her Word as Witness: Women Writers of the African Diaspora will serve as a visual tribute to women of literature and letters. The collection images will be a set of large format photographic portraits of 35 women writers of African descent.

The new Bloomfield College Art Gallery is located on the upper floor of the Library. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The Art Gallery is funded in part by the Predominantly Black Institutions (PBI) Program Formula Grant.
