The Arts Council of Princeton’s Paul Robeson Center serves as a key resource for contemporary art in central New Jersey. Through thought-provoking exhibitions and related public programs, the Arts Council presents artwork with a broad range of aesthetic, social, cultural, and political themes.

On Optimism

While we navigated the disruption of life as we knew it, so many of us turned to art for comfort, expression, documentation, and relief.

To celebrate art’s power to lift us out of darkness, our gallery committee will place an emphasis on exhibition proposals that reflect a sense of optimism for our 2022 gallery calendar. Artists are encouraged to embrace the theme in any medium, literally or figuratively, through a realistic or abstract lens. Our 2022 calendar of exhibitions and events will mirror this collective hope for brighter days ahead.

Important dates:
June 12, 2021: deadlines for submissions
by July 20, 2021: artists will be notified about the status of their proposal
