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.


Puffin Statement on the Invasion of Ukraine

Puffin condemns the invasion of Ukraine by Russia and the murders and suffering being carried out by the wishes of President Valdamir Putin. He bears sole responsibility for the destruction, chaos, and loss of life.Ā  Our thoughts are with everyone who has been impacted by this war, including the people of Ukraine, the surrounding countries, and all those around the world with family, friends and loved ones in the region. Putin has perverted the concept of anti-fascism to justify his pursuit of a new Russian empire. These despicable violations of human rights must be opposed by the world community.
