ContactMs. Marjorie F. Nathanson
For general operating support of contemporary art, craft and design, and education and community outreach that fosters the highest standards of artistic excellence.
Mission: The Hunterdon Art Museum connects people to contemporary art, craft, and design in ways that educate, challenge and inspire.
History: The museum is located on the banks of the Raritan River in a mill built in 1836. Founded as the Hunterdon County Art Center in 1952 by a group of local artists and businessmen, the museum has played a vital role in the art and commercial communities since its beginning. A scenic landmark, it was placed on the National Historic Register in 1982. The museum has been transformed from a mill to exhibition spaces and classrooms, and recently the parking area was converted into a terrace overlooking the Raritan River, a place for the community to enjoy. Renovations to the building have made it fully ADA compliant.
The organization has been the provider of art programs and exhibitions for over 60 years. The museum's permanent collection focuses on works on paper, primarily prints.
