The Arts Inclusion Program

Since the passage of the Public Building Arts Inclusion Act in 1978, New Jersey’s Public Arts Inclusion Program has led to the commissioning and installation of hundreds of artworks in state financed construction projects. The New Jersey State Council on the Arts assists State agencies and universities in the selection of artists for projects including those for NJ Transit’s Transit Arts Program, and major projects like new buildings, renovations, monuments, and memorials.

In addition to featuring the many works created through the Public Building Arts Inclusion Act, designated here as the State of New Jersey Collection, the State Arts Council seeks to highlight all forms of public art in New Jersey. By undertaking this online archive of public art from across the state, the State Arts Council aims to make New Jersey’s vast collection of art in public spaces easy to find, connect with, and enjoy. This online tool provides open access to works of public art for anyone visiting, studying, or simply passing by, and helps every New Jersey resident locate the art in their own communities. This archive will continue to grow, as will New Jersey’s collection of inspiring, informative and reflective works of art.
