Governor Murphy proclaims October 2022 as Discover Jersey Arts Month!

October is Discover Jersey Arts Month and art impacts us in very individual ways. Songs can transport you to a specific time in your life; performances can both entertain and inspire you; photographs can change how you view the world.

The arts impact our everyday lives and Discover Jersey Arts Month continues to celebrate the joy, entertainment, and enrichment the arts bring to our communities.
