History: Opened in 1983, The Noyes Museum of Art was the result of Ethel and Fred W. Noyes, Jr. 's dream to share their passion for the arts. Fred W. Noyes, Jr. was an academically trained artist who studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the internationally renowned Barnes Foundation in Merion, PA in the 1930s. Ethel Noyes studied folklore of the region and developed an appreciation for primitive American art. Together the Noyeses formed the Mr. and Mrs. Fred Winslow Noyes Foundation in 1973 with the intent of establishing a museum.
In 2010, The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey has entered into collaboration with the Noyes Museum of Art that will benefit students and enthusiasts of the arts, as well as the College, Museum and the entire southern New Jersey region. Stockton, which has a longstanding commitment to the arts and humanities, has partner with the Noyes Museum and provided significant renovations and upgrades.
Mission: The Noyes Museum of Art of Richard Stockton College incorporated in 1983 will be celebrating its 30th year in June 2013. As the only art museum in southern New Jersey, the Museum has an obligation to serve the eight southern counties with a mission that builds upon the core of its founders, Fred and Ethel Noyes. The three pillars of the Museum's mission are Learn, Explore and Experience. Through the Museum's enhanced exhibitions, event communication 'channels' and relationships with the education community, the museum provides an environment for learning.
