Who We Are
Discover Jersey Arts (DJA) is a cosponsored project of the ArtPride New Jersey Foundation and New Jersey State Council on the Arts dedicated to increasing the awareness of and participation in the arts in New Jersey.

JerseyArts.com supports that mission by providing a central clearinghouse of information on the Garden State’s cultural scene. Whether browsing the site’s comprehensive event calendar, searching its directory of cultural organizations, discovering works by local artists in its virtual gallery, or catching up on what’s new this season in our Culture Vultures Arts Weekly and Jersey Arts Podcast, JerseyArts.com is the hub for what’s going on in NJ’s arts scene.
