On behalf of the New Jersey Juvenile Justice Commission, the New Jersey State Council on the Arts is soliciting Expressions of Interest (EOI) from prospective artists to design, fabricate, and install artwork for two new secure juvenile justice campuses being constructed in Ewing and Winslow Townships, New Jersey. The proposed artwork for the new campuses is part of the New Jersey Arts Inclusion Program. These three calls seek responses from artists who have experience in public art projects of similar scope and budget size, and who are willing and able to contract with the State of New Jersey.

EOI: NJ Juvenile Justice Commission - Tile/Mosaic Mural

EOI: NJ Juvenile Justice Commission - Glass Wall

EOI: NJ Juvenile Justice Commission - Circular Medallions

The New Jersey State Council on the Arts will be hosting a free, virtual meet and greet for Teaching Artists on June 3, 2024 | 1:00 - 3:00 PM. Registered Teaching Artists will have the opportunity to meet with arts organizations looking to engage with and hire Teaching Artists.

HOW IT WORKS: Teaching Artists will be able to self-select breakout rooms managed by arts organizations across the state. Organizations will be assigned 15 minutes to present about their programming and allow for TAs to ask questions about their hiring requirements, available positions, and more. At the conclusion of the 15 minutes, TAs will have the opportunity to self-select another organization or stay in the current organization’s breakout room. Presentation materials for all participating organizations will be made available to registered attendees.

WHO WILL BE THERE: The State Arts Council welcomes over 15 arts organizations from across the state. To learn more about who will be in attendance, download the Speed Networking Brochure.

The New Jersey State Council on the Arts, created in 1966, is a division of the NJ Department of State and a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts. The Council was established to encourage and foster public interest in the arts; enlarge public and private resources devoted to the arts; promote freedom of expression in the arts; and facilitate the inclusion of art in every public building in New Jersey. The Council believes the arts are central to every element we value most in a modern society including: human understanding; cultural and civic pride; strong communities; excellent schools; lifelong learning; creative expression; and economic opportunity.
