VIRTUAL ART CLASSES WITH PRINCETON UNIVERSITY ART MUSEUM

The Arts Council is partnering with the Princeton University Art Museum to provide free, live, online art-making experiences.

Weekly classes are taught by artist-instructor Barbara DiLorenzo over Zoom, so participants can join live from their home computers; techniques emphasize drawing with pen or pencil on paper. Each week’s lesson features works from the Museum’s collections and relates to the Museum’s weekly online curatorial lecture. Follow the Arts Council’s Facebook page for the most up-to-date information!

Community Stage Performance Series
Call for Proposal 

The Arts Council of Princeton presents a Call for Proposal for its Community Stage Performing Art Series. Community Stage productions are free and open to the public, held in collaboration with local artistic groups and organizations. Community Stage programming enables the Arts Council’s Solley Theater to act as an accessible space for community partnerships and high-quality performing arts experiences.

The Community Stage Series is booked on a rolling basis and will be scheduled at the discretion of the Arts Council, no less than 8 weeks from receiving a proposal.

Community Stage performers are local not-for-profit groups that are enthusiastic co-promoters and require no sound/lighting production. For example, a local children’s chorus group meets the criteria, but an individual’s child ballet recital does not.

Community Stage Performers ARE:
– performing in affiliation with a non-profit/community organization to present music, dance, spoken word, theater, etc.

Community Stage Performers ARE NOT:
– individuals/bands/professional artists looking for performance space.  For more information about the ACP’s rental space for recitals, click here.

The Arts Council retains the right to approve/deny Community Stage opportunities at its discretion.

To be considered for a Community Stage Performance:

If you believe your group fits the above criteria, please email Program Coordinator Melissa Kuscin at mkuscin@artscouncilofprinceton.org with the subject line Community Stage Performance Proposal.
