Fall Open House at Arts Council of Princeton

The Arts Council of Princeton (ACP) invites the community to a Fall Open House on Saturday, September 18 from 1-3 p.m. 

Free and open to the public, the Fall Open House will feature the inaugural ACP Pottery Throwdown where attendees can watch ceramic artists in friendly competition while competing in various challenges on the potter’s wheel. In addition, each studio will be filled with opportunities to watch artists at work and discover the variety of classes and workshops the Arts Council has to offer, including painting and drawing, dance, textile art, clay, and more. 

In celebration of the Arts Council’s increasing public art presence in Princeton, attendees of all ages will be invited to make their mark on a community fence mural that will be on permanent display outside of the Arts Council’s Paul Robeson Center for the Arts. Take part in giveaways to win complimentary memberships, ACP “swag,” and additional prizes. Attendees can also take advantage of one-day-only rate on Individual and Family Memberships, granting access to discounts on classes, camps, and at local businesses across town.

“When we are out in the community painting murals, passersby always comment, ‘That looks like so much fun!’ So here is your chance to stop by and participate in some hands-on art making and also see all the classes, workshops, and events we have to offer,” said Maria Evans, ACP artistic director. “Stop in, see what makes us such a special place, and who knows — after taking a ceramic class, you may just be the star of our next Pottery Throwdown!”

ACP is located at 102 Witherspoon Street in Princeton. For more information, visit artscouncilofprinceton.org.
