The Metuchen Arts Council organizes and sponsors many exciting art, music and other cultural events throughout the year.

The Council were established in 1967 as a subcommittee of the Recreation Commission of the Borough of Metuchen to foster, promote, encourage and celebrate the Arts in Metuchen, in order to enhance the quality of life and spirit of community for all of the residents of the Borough.
Arts Council meetings are held at 8:00pm on the 4th Monday of the month at the Metuchen Boro Hall. For information, call 732 632-8502 or email graceshackney at gmail dot com. New members are always welcome!
