For support of the State of the Arts mission to inspire New Jerseyans to engage with the arts through storytelling.
For most of its history, State of the Arts was a television production of NJN Public Broadcasting. Ten years ago, the series transitioned from a host-driven/studio-based program to an on-location documentary-style production. Two years ago, State of the Arts became an independent project co-produced by Richard Stockton College of NJ and NJ State Council on the Arts (NJSCA), in cooperation with PCK Media, LLC. The series continues to air on NJ Public Television, NJTV, with added weekly broadcasts on WHYY Public Media. Individual stories that make up the show are short documentaries, with a long life both on-air and online. State of the Arts is now maximizing its online presence with a YouTube channel, a new website, and a more vital social media presence. Throughout, the goal has remained the same: to explore and report on the arts in New Jersey.
Stockton has co-produced the series since 2011, drawing on its traditions of liberal arts and community involvement. Dante Hall, the Noyes Museum and the Stockton Performing Arts Center demonstrate our commitment to producing vibrant arts programming and it is in this spirit that Stockton produces State of the Arts.
Susan Wallner, Eric Schultz, and Christopher Benincasa of PCK Media are all experienced arts producers. Robert Gregg, Stockton's Dean of General Studies, Allison Tratner, NJSCA's Director of Communications, Larry Carlbon, NJSCA Board Member, and Wendel White, Stockton Distinguished Art Professor are advisors to the program.
