Originally founded in 1964 as a support organization for professional artists, the Princeton Art Association was located in Princeton, New Jersey until 1988 when it relocated to Trenton, New Jersey. During the 1990's and 2000's the organization transformed into a venue for outsider, emerging and contemporary art, as well as a local institution for art education and cultural appreciation. It has since become an essential piece of the cultural landscape in Mercer County and Trenton New Jersey, with programming that reaches over ten thousand individuals annually.
