Mission

Mission
Perth Amboy Artworks works to stimulate economic and community development using Arts & Culture. We produce the Live at the Ferry Slip Music Series, and have sponsored murals and pop up arts eventsFounded in 2015, we are a nonprofit corporation with 501 c3 tax-exemption status. We believe Arts & Culture make communities stronger and more enjoyable places to live and we have experienced first hand the positive impact of community based arts efforts. We are celebrating Perth Amboy through Arts & Culture.

Current Programming
Through cultural engagement & activation of underutilized spaces we help to revitalize Perth Amboy. We create public art and produce pop-up events. . Our pop-up events show off Perth Amboy’s unique and historic properties and add vibrancy to our waterfront and downtown. Our events bring the community together, improve quality of life, and attract visitors to the City. The projects create new interest in businesses, give local artists opportunities, and also interest potential new residents who are looking for progressive communities with local activities in a beautiful setting like Perth Amboy offers. Cities are coming back in NJ, and Arts & Culture are driving that revitalization.
