Annual Report 2021-22

A letter from the President of the Board

Joe Kossow Headshot

The Arts Council of Princeton had a year of exciting growth in which we were able to greatly expand the programs and events that our community treasures. Some programming made its way back after a pandemic pause and some was new, but all of our programs were well – even joyously – received!  

Our visual art, music, dance, and ceramic studios are full of dedicated and inspired students. Virtual classes have expanded our reach to bring inspiration to new students. New outreach programs, such as the afterschool smART kids program for middle schoolers and the Pride Art Club for LGBTQIA+ students, illustrateour commitment to explore and support every opportunity to change a life through the incredible power of art. 

You joined and supported all our public events in a big way, too! We danced the night away at our How Deep is Your Love? party last fall and again at our reimagined springtime Art People Party. Café Improv and Story & Verse continue to flourish as venues to share musical and spoken word talent. Our galleries hosted a wide variety of beautiful and thought-provoking exhibitions, and we created opportunities for dozens more artists to share their work online with live presentations. We continue to bring art into the streets of Princeton in new and exciting ways. The enthusiastic response to the many elements of April ARTS and the inaugural Princeton Porchfest music festival is a testament to the importance of public art and performance in serving our mission: building community through the arts. 

Your appreciation and support continue to be incredible, for which everyone at the Arts Council is inspired and grateful. Personally, as I continue in my role of Board President, I am ready and excited to help the ACP continue to build on what’s here, and dream about what’s to come. I hope that you will join me to share the joy that comes with bringing art into all our lives. Your participation in Arts Council programs and your generous support is so very, very much appreciated! 

Joe Kossow, President, Board of Trustees 

A letter from the Executive Director

Adam Welch

As I write this year in review, I am turning the page on my second anniversary with the Arts Council of Princeton – and what another spectacular year it has been! We are reflecting on our recent April ARTS initiative, a month filled to the brim with public art, music, theater, visual arts, and public performances. April was kicked off with an official Proclamation declaring “April ARTS Month” and acknowledging the Arts Council of Princeton’s 55 years of building community through the arts. We celebrated the first day of the Princeton Piano Project, an initiative bringing original artwork and public performance to the streets of Princeton. 

Finally, we commemorated the conclusion of the inaugural April ARTS with Princeton Porchfest. Porchfest was a first for our community, and together we created a musical experience that will resound for years to come. Art has transformative power: when the right note is hit, it vibrates through our very soul. Porchfest – and 2022 at the ACP – seems to have hit that note.  

That was only this Spring. Throughout the year, we embraced change, expanded our activities, and experienced new energy. As you comb through our Annual Report, I think you will agree that dynamism and vitality are palpable as we continue to redefine how we fulfil our mission. The mural project on Spring Street has continuously rotated to bring new perspectives to the epicenter of Princeton’s Central Business District; our public art and public performances are expanding and bringing renewed life to Downtown. 

I might be most proud of our outreach programs. As our long-standing services continue – such as Arts Exchange, established in 1993 in partnership with HomeFront – new initiatives have paved the way to bring the benefits of artmaking to more community members. Our Pride Art Club meets weekly to host LGBTQIA+ teens and allies to produce a graphic novel while exploring gender identity and expression in a safe, creative space. Yet another new program, smART kids, provides middle schoolers from low-income families with art lessons, homework help, and a snack. We take very seriously the potential for art to contribute to a healthy society, and we know you do too. 

Our staff, faculty and volunteers are the backbone of our institution, and you, the community, are truly the soul. I could not be more honored to have been a part of so much JOY and creativity. I know you share my pride that we all were able to celebrate so much art making – together. Of course, none of this is possible without the support of a community that values the arts. Thank you for being along for the ride.  

Adam Welch, Executive Director

COMMUNITY EVENTS

Various photos from community events

2022 was a banner year for the Arts Council. While we expanded on beloved, longstanding events like our Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Day of the Dead celebration, new initiatives made 2022 a year to remember.

October marked our first Pop-Up Beer Garden in partnership with local brewery, Old Hights Brewing Co. Our parking lot transformed into a celebration of local beer, local music, and local love, all to raise funds for our Outreach Programs and Scholarship Fund, making inspiring arts experiences accessible to all, regardless of means. 

April ARTS was a month-long celebration of arts, culture, and the Princeton community. We kicked off with the launch of the Princeton Piano Project, inviting local artists to transform upright pianos into public works of art in their own unique styles. Each piano was displayed around our downtown, creating vibrant opportunities for all visitors to enjoy a temporary piece of new, innovative public art – and the music that came from them! To celebrate this robust month of programming created for and with our community, April 2022 was officially named April ARTS Month via a proclamation by the Office of the Mayor of Princeton. 

April came to a festive close with the inaugural Princeton Porchfest, a townwide festival held on porches generously contributed by fun-loving Princetonians. More than 70 artists in every genre imaginable performed for grateful attendees all day long. It truly was the epitome of our mission of building community through the arts. Don’t take our word for it… (Porchfest YouTube video QR code) LINK: Community and campus connect for Princeton’s first Porchfest.

June’s Outdoor Pride Dance Party was also a first, welcoming our LGBTQIA+ community and allies to bust a move under the night sky. The event was held in partnership with our friends at the Princeton Record Exchange and was a fabulous night of pride anthems, glow sticks, hula hoops, and glitter tattoos.

ANNE REEVES ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM

Superbloom, Fiona Chinkan

Acclaimed fine art photographer Robin Resch was our Anne Reeves Artist-in-Residence through October 2021. During her residency, Resch continued to work locally on her series, aptly named Taking Pause, in response to the challenges of this year and the COVID-19 pandemic. With the support of the Princeton University Humanities Council, The Bank of Princeton, Princeton Future, and Timothy M. Andrews, this moving exhibit and accompanying essays were displayed in Dohm Alley in downtown Princeton. 

In April 2022, the Arts Council named Samuel Johnson, Potter and Professor of Art and Department Chair at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University in Central Minnesota, our Spring 2022 Artist-in-Residence. A studio potter, painter, and independent curator, Johnson led two community-based events: a live bowl-throwing demonstration in Hinds Plaza, and a new teapot workshop in our ceramic studio – STEEP Your Way – in conjunction with the STEEP exhibition on view in the Taplin Gallery.  

PUBLIC & COMMUNITY ART

Our public art program has never been more vibrant. More murals, completed by our team and local artists, brought their own flair to new corners of town. This year, we completed two new murals in the popular rotating location on Spring Street: Ben Colbert’s moody Hurry Sundown and Fiona Chinkan’s colorful Superbloom. Team ACP completed the LOVE and Kindness murals as colorful messages to our community. We wrapped up yet another mural at an exciting new site, Littlebrook Elementary, where our GROW mural will inspire our community’s youngest members for years to come. 

In the fall, we unveiled a new public art installation in celebration of el Día de los Muertos, celebrating the cycle of life, appreciating the traditions of an ancient culture, and honoring those who came before us. Our installation adorned Dohm Alley with the traditional elements of Day of the Dead including marigolds, papel picado, and Mexican tin art made with the Princeton Young Acheivers, and Monarch butterflies. 

This spring, our Princeton Piano Project hit the streets, providing seven locations with beautifully hand-painted pianos and beckoning impromptu performances throughout town. The Princeton Parklet made its springtime return to Downtown Princeton, providing residents and visitors alike with an artful, streetside respite.

EDUCATION

Our educational programming continues to flourish thanks to our dedicated instructors and students. Education staff and our talented teaching artists developed and ran online and in-person classes ranging from Flamenco to watercolors, mixed-media collage, and creative writing.

An expanded ceramics program, children’s textile classes, and print-making workshops were just a few of the highlights from last year. Eden Arts for autistic students and Adapted Arts, our class for for neuro-atypical young adults, continued online to keep the creativity flowing in a safe way.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Outreach Artwork

Outreach programs represent the founding ethos of the Arts Council: creative self-expression is fundamental to well-being. These free weekly programs for our vulnerable and low-income populations offer the same high-quality professionally-taught art education as any of our fee-bearing classes. We never cease to be amazed by the talent and creativity shown by our community’s youngest art makers. 

ArtReach offers free, hands-on arts education throughout the school year to students K-5 in the Princeton Public schools. With safety guidelines in place, we were thrilled to resume in-person classes at the Henry Pannell Learning Center on Witherspoon Street and at the Princeton Nursery School.  

Since 1993, in partnership with HomeFront, the Arts Exchange program offers students aged 5 to 18 weekly art making experiences, this spring we were overjoyed to welcome the students back in person. In celebration of National Poetry Month, the Arts Exchange students participated in a series of poetry workshops, culminating in an open mic poetry night where our budding poets presented their work alongside seasoned community poets.

Arts Exchange

Creative Aging, our program for low-income seniors at Greenwood House, a local assisted living facility, and Elm Court, a Princeton Community Housing residence, remained online for safety reasons, but our committed instructor went above and beyond, making personal phone calls to residents to keep them connected and creative.  

This year the ACP proudly launched smART Kids, a free program designed to offer local middle schoolers a safe place to gather after school and share in hands on art creation with a bilingual instructor. The students also received homework help and delicious food. We are deeply grateful to Kathy Herring, Jammin’ Crepes, and Send Hunger Packing Princeton for offering healthy and hearty refreshments, as well as Princeton University for providing staff and student tutoring volunteers – they made this program that much more special.

Creative Aging

This year a longtime dream of ours came to life when we introduced our PRIDE Art Club, offering LGBTQIA+ teens and their allies a safe place for self-expression and support. Under the guidance of author, illustrator, and activist Rashad Malik Davis, the club produced and self-published two graphic novels this year! 

SUPPORT & FUNDRAISERS

What a joy it was to gather together once again to celebrate the arts and our community at our How Deep is Your Love? disco party in the fall, and Art People Party in the spring. We have shared so many wonderful virtual moments but nothing compares to seeing all of you in person! 

In September, we gathered in Lydia and Johan Pfeiffer’s garden for our How Deep is Your Love? fundraiser. It was a spectacular night of delicious food, great drinks, and dancing under the stars with old and new friends alike. Proceeds from this event help fulfill our mission of building community through the arts by expanding our community education programs including those for LGBTQIA+ teens, at-risk youth, and underserved families and seniors. This sold-out event helped us surpass our fundraising goal and was a fabulous kick-off to being back in-person.  

In March, we held our signature spring art fundraiser, Art People Party: Step into the Studio (formerly Pinot to Picasso) in a transformed warehouse space. More than 300 guests enjoyed dancing, our signature “tombola” art lottery featuring works donated by 56 regional artists, and a delectable sampling of food and beverages from spectacular local restaurants. This event supports the Anne Reeves Artist-in-Residence program, which empowers local artists to create new work and showcase their talents via workshops, public art opportunities, and gallery exhibitions.
