The Montclair Arts Advisory Committee was founded in 2015. It aims to promote cultural enrichment, education and a strong economy within the Montclair Township. They support a broad range of artistic activities to do so. Specificall, they focus on areas of Space, Services, Funding, Advocacy, and Arts Education.

“We hope to receive input from the arts community and encourage the community to join together to form a strong and unified arts advocacy network,” said committee founder, Elaine Molinaro. “By doing so, we want to ensure the arts and arts education have a strong voice in Montclair.”
