The Cranbury Arts Council provides arts-oriented programs, workshops, and performances aimed at enriching the cultural experiences of our community and keeping the creative spirit alive in ourselves and our children. Our mission is to foster, support, educate, inspire, and promote artists and art appreciation in our community. The Arts Council is a non-profit, volunteer organization. Our funding is provided by yearly membership dues, donations, and a bi-annual fundraising event.
