For general support of the Hunterdon Art Museum's exhibitions of contemporary art, craft and design, and education and community outreach programs.
Mission: The Hunterdon Art Museum connects people to contemporary art, craft, and design in ways that educate, challenge, and inspire.
History: Located in downtown Clinton on the banks of the South Branch of the Raritan River in a nineteenth century mill, the Hunterdon Art Museum was founded in 1952 by a group of local citizens. Originally called the Hunterdon County Art Center, the organization has always played a vital role in the community not only as a provider of art programs, but also as a scenic attraction. The mill was placed on the National Historic Register in 1982 and in that same decade renovations made the building fully ADA compliant. In 1998 it became the Hunterdon Museum of Art and later the Hunterdon Art Museum.
