About Us

The Puffin Cultural Forum, a project of The Puffin Foundation, Ltd., is the gallery and performance space located at the site of the Foundation’s administrative offices in Teaneck, New Jersey.

We deeply believe in the crucial role that the arts play in shaping our consciousness, and the role of artists as agents of social change.

We invite you to share your memories, stories, and reflections on this Facebook page, and to enjoy those shared by others. Perry Rosenstein: A Life and Times Memorial.
