For more than five decades, Monmouth Arts has been dedicated to bringing the transformative power of the arts to the Monmouth County community. Our organization has provided essential art programs and services to thousands of artists, member organizations, students, and art affiliates, ensuring the arts thrive in every part of the County.

For the upcoming year, we have some exciting plans to expand our community outreach, enhance our educational initiatives, and offer innovative art experiences to a broader audience. This includes providing over $130,000 in funding to arts organizations, providing free resources, individual guidance, and marketing support to the creative community, ensuring that residents of all ages can access the arts through various programs such as the Creative Aging Arts Program, Creative Expressions Arts and Wellness Program for underserved youth, Monmouth County Senior Art Show, and the Monmouth Arts Teen Arts Festival, and providing Emerging Artist Scholarships to high school students who are pursuing an arts degree in college. In addition to our new administrative offices on Maple Avenue, we are excited to announce our new community space, Monmouth Arts at the Carlton at the Count Basie Center for the Arts! This multi-purpose space will be ideal for workshops, networking, programs, community events, and pop-up artisan markets.     


During this holiday season, we urge you to support our critical work with a tax-deductible donation to our TOGETHER WE BUILD CREATIVITY. As a non-profit organization, we depend on the generosity of supporters like you to make a meaningful impact in our community. Our goal is to raise $25,000, and every contribution, no matter how big or small, brings us closer to making a real difference. To show our appreciation, we offer various donor recognition levels and benefits, including acknowledgment on our website and exclusive invitations to events and exhibition openings. 

We appreciate your support and commitment to making a difference in our community. Together, we can inspire, educate, and transform lives through the power of arts.
