Discover Jersey Arts Month

DJA Month ProclamationGovernor Murphy proclaimed October 2021 as Discover Jersey Arts Month!

From the moment you wake up until your head rests on your pillow, art is all around you — from the clothes you select each day to the songs on your playlist, from your artfully plated meal to the pictures you take with your smartphone. Art is everywhere and it's never been more important!

Commemorate Discover Jersey Arts Month by visiting Learn about the tremendous impact the arts have on the state and hear real stories of how art affects the lives of people of all backgrounds. You can also thank your legislators for supporting the arts or make a donation to the New Jersey Arts & Culture Recovery Fund.
