Judith Peck is a sculptor and Professor Emerita of Art at Ramapo (State) College of New Jersey. Her work is in over 80 public and private collections, including the Yale Art Gallery, the Ghetto Fighters Museum in Israel, and libraries, temples, colleges and corporate offices. Recent solo shows include "Ladies of Steel" on the Dag Hammarskjold Plaza by the United Nations, 16 life size sculptures on the Lowenstein Pavilion at Fordham University at Lincoln Center, and numerous gallery and museum exhibitions of works in bronze, stone, wood and mixed media.
Dr. Peck's sculpture reflects her interest in the human condition, individually and globally. Her commitment to human rights extends to her teaching as a professor at Ramapo where she instituted a program to train college students to conduct art workshops in jails, homes for abused children, psychiatric centers, domestic violence shelters and nursing homes.
