Art Pride is the organization whose mission is to educate the public about the value of the arts as an economic, social and cultural force in our state. In times of crisis, the role of Art Pride New Jersey is crucial as it is where the state's not-for-profit arts groups go in times of crisis and we in New Jersey have had more than our share of those. It is the organization that keeps arts organizations informed about issues of concern and is the place from which statewide arts advocacy efforts emanate. Last Fall when state grants to arts organizations were frozen, it was Art Pride that took the leadership role in working for restoration.
