At Bergen Paul Mindell has taught painting, drawing, and life drawing since 1988. Prof. Mindell is a painter and photo collage artist. His work is in numerous private and corporate collections, and he has exhibited widely in regional and national shows, notably in Washington’s National Portrait Gallery during 2009–2010. He headed the Art Program from 1993–2000, and led the initiative in the mid-1990s to focus the program toward an expansion in curriculum, course offerings and facilities:  computer graphics and animation degrees were created, and the twenty studio and/or art history sections of 1988 increased to more than eighty. In 2010 he was selected for the College’s “NISOD Award for Teaching Excellence.”
