For general operating support for gallery exhibition season, educational programming and free community events.
The Arts Council of Princeton's mission statement, "Building Community Through the Arts", was developed with the belief that the arts and arts education: are fundamental to a healthy society; directly impact academic achievement and improve literacy for school students; positively contribute to the quality of life for all area residents; contribute significantly to economic development; and promote cross-cultural understanding and appreciation.
The Arts Council fulfills its mission by presenting a wide range of arts and arts education programs including studio-based classes and workshops in the visual, performing and media arts, exhibitions, performances, and free community cultural events. The Arts Council's programs are designed to be high-quality, engaging, affordable and accessible to the diverse population in the greater Princeton region. Creating art and learning from working artists and performers in intimate artistic encounters directly speaks to the Arts Council's mission. Through these experiences, all people are encouraged to engage in the artistic process.
