Arts Council

The Metuchen Arts Council, formerly the Metuchen Cultural Arts Commission, was established in 1967 as a subcommittee of the Recreation Commission of the Borough of Metuchen. 

The Arts Council is operated under the authority established in Chapter 10 – Article 5 of the Metuchen Municipal Code.  The Council consists of 18 members.

The Metuchen Arts Council fosters, promotes, encourages and celebrates the Arts in Metuchen, in order to enhance the quality of life and spirit of community for all of the residents of the Borough.  We do this by:

  • Helping  to broaden an understanding of and appreciation of artistic excellence and diversity by sponsoring exciting, innovative, entertaining programs representative of all of the arts disciplines, including new media.
  • Being  an advocate for the arts and our local artists, strengthening and integrating the arts into all aspects of community life.
  • Creating  a favorable, welcoming climate to attract artists of all ages, cultures and areas of interest to the Borough.

The purpose of the Metuchen Arts Council is to provide and to promote culturally enriching programs and activities for the citizens of the Borough of Metuchen; make recommendation to the Mayor and Council and other Borough agencies with respect to any matters relating to the advancement of the arts in the Borough; and to act as liaison between the Borough Council and other federal, state and county bodies involved in promoting, funding or presenting cultural, visual and performing arts in the community. 

Meetings:                           3 rd   Monday of the month at 7:30 p.m. at the Senior Center (15 Center St.)
