Welcome to the Jersey City Arts Council.


Welcome to the Jersey City Arts Council. We are a working board of experienced individuals with long and varied involvement in the local arts community. We are dedicated to supporting the thriving artists here, ensuring that Jersey City is a unique and accessible arts and culture destination.

Percent for the ARTS - June 14

At the next meeting of the City Council, members of the arts community, and those who believe that funds for the Arts should be some part of the City's budget, will gather at City Hall to petition the City Council for a “percent for the Arts.”

Please plan to attend and wear RED to show your heart for the arts. The more bodies in the room, the more the City Council will recognize the presence and power of the arts in Jersey City!

Your presence on June 14 is a powerful statement, but if you want to speak directly to the City Council about the need for institutional support for the arts in Jersey City, you must register beforehand with the City Clerk's office.
