New Jersey State Council on the Arts

Since 1966, the Arts Council’s volunteer members and professional staff have worked to improve the quality of life in New Jersey by helping the arts to flourish. The Arts Council’s array of programs and services are supported by a direct appropriation from the State of New Jersey through a dedicated Hotel/Motel Occupancy fee and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts.
