For general operating support to foster artistic awareness through cultural, educational and artistic enrichment in Millville, New Jersey.
Since April of 2001, the RRCA has been a non-profit community arts and cultural center in the heart of Millville's Glasstown Arts District. As one of Millville's most well-established art galleries and the anchor of the Arts District, the RRCA's mission is to work with unwavering resolve to create a sense of community and foster artistic awareness while positively effecting the economic vitality of the Arts District through cultural, educational and artistic enrichment.
The history the RRCA has written and the journey it continues to make has been a rewarding one. The arts center first began as an idea developed collaboratively by artists, the city's leadership and community members in 1999. These groups and individuals saw a need for a community arts center and a leader in downtown revitalization efforts through the arts, and in 2001 they made it happen. Thus, it was the pioneering organization in the establishment of the Glasstown Arts District and has since continued to lead the way, both individually and through strategic partnerships, in the growth and success of the Arts District. RRCA has worked strategically with city government and others to use the creative power of the arts to build an ever-growing arts district in the downtown area. What was once an abandoned men and boy's store on a 'main street' of vacant stores was creatively rehabilitated as a gallery and art center. Today, the RRCA is a thriving non-profit and charitable organization supported by many.
