The Arts Council of Princeton's mission statement of "Building Community Through the Arts" was developed with the belief that the arts and arts education: Are fundamental to a healthy society; Directly impact academic achievement and improve literacy for school students; Positively contribute to the quality of life for all area residents; Contribute significantly to economic development; and Promote cross-cultural understanding and appreciation. The ACP fulfills its mission by presenting a wide range of arts and arts education programs including studio-based classes and workshops in the visual, performing and media arts, exhibitions, performances, and free community cultural events. Arts Council of Princeton programs are designed to be high-quality, engaging, affordable and accessible for the diverse population in the greater Princeton region. Creating art and learning from working artists and performers in intimate artistic encounters directly addresses the ACP’s mission.
The Arts Council of Princeton (ACP) was founded as an independent Non-profit organization in 1967 by Bill Selden, its first President. From the beginning, its mission has been to Build Community Through the Arts, serving the community as an artistic and cultural hub and nurturing visual, performing and literary arts in the greater Princeton area.
In June 2008, the Arts Council of Princeton’s building at 102 Witherspoon Street was re-opened to the public and christened the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts. The renovated arts center is twice the size of the original building and includes a gallery, theater, multi-disciplinary art studios and public meeting space. Today, every corner of the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts hums with creative activity, and the ACP continues to develop new and innovative programming for the greater Princeton community. ACP presents a wide range of programs including exhibitions, performances, free community cultural events and studio-based classes and workshops in the visual, performing and literary arts.
