New Jersey Performing Arts Center

Established to attract renowned performers and serve as a catalyst for the city’s revitalization, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center opened to the public in 1997.  Since then, the Center has attracted 9 million visitors, engaged 1.5 children in its arts education programs, and offered numerous free events aimed to attract new and diverse audiences.  In 2014, the Center launched Express Newark: A University-Community Collaboratory in partnership with Rutgers University-Newark.  The project seeks to revitalize a long-neglected city building into studios, galleries, performance spaces, and a multimedia incubator where students, residents, organizations and institutions can collaborate.
