Did you know?

Your charitable support of the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey's Spring Gala brings high-quality arts enrichment to underserved school children in Elizabeth, Summit, and across the state of New Jersey.

Why is this important? Because research shows that students who participate in the arts are:

  • 4 times more likely to participate in a math or science fair.
  • 3 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement, and 3 times more likely to win an award for school attendance.
  • Low-income students who are highly engaged in the arts are more than twice as likely to graduate college as their peers without arts education.
