Where creativity builds community.

The Center for the Arts was designed to showcase creativity and innovation—in all its forms of artistic expression—to educate and engage the greater TCNJ community. In collaboration with the School of the Arts and Communication, other Schools at TCNJ, student organizations, and local resources, our mission is to consider how the arts open windows to understanding our communities, their cultural and social evolution, and their future.
