The Visual Arts Center of New Jersey offers a full calendar of engaging and innovative programs and events that make art accessible to all audiences. Public Programming inspires cultural and artistic enlightenment within our community and beyond its borders—including artist talks, lecture series, panel discussions, film screenings, theatrical performances and hands-on art-making events. Many of these programs are fundamental in connecting the Art Center’s contemporary art exhibitions with teachers, students, adults, children and families, while expanding their knowledge and understanding of contemporary art.
As part of our mission of bringing art and people together, we believe in the inclusivity of all groups and through Community Engagement Programs we make art available to under-served, economically disadvantaged and marginalized audiences. It is our goal to provide transformative learning experiences for our audience so that they leave the Art Center with a greater sense of self and the world around them. The support to bring these programs to special audiences is often gained through our annual fundraisers and Member events.
