  • 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.
