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. Our work takes place at the intersection of the arts and the struggle for human rights as we seek to realize in our local community the Foundation’s governing motto: “…continuing the dialogue between art and the lives of ordinary people”. 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.

Perry Rosenstein, the founder and president of The Puffin Foundation and Puffin Cultural Forum, passed away on 4/3/20 from COVID-19. 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.
