Sussex County Arts & Heritage Council

We provide funding for local arts and history events by redistributing grant funds from the New Jersey Council on the Arts and the New Jersey Council for the Humanities to Sussex County nonprofit organizations.

We retain a small sum from these funds to cover expenses incurred administrating the grant programs. However, this covers just a fraction of our costs. We must make up the difference with the help of our sponsors and supporters, contributions by our members, and our fundraising activities.                

We organize art exhibits in local businesses, the Newton Courthouse and in the  Atrium at the Performing Art Center at Sussex County Community College.

Visit us at 133 Spring Street, Newton. NJ 07860    

Tuesday - Friday 10 AM - 4 PM & Saturday Noon - 4 PM
