The Arts

Art is a source for community and civic pride; it both engages people and it transforms lives.  It adds richness and dimension to our lives.  Art is a powerful and dynamic economic force that supports key businesses and tourism.  It attracts and retains residents, consumers and other commercial interests and brings jobs and additional revenue. The Arts are essential to a quality education and help our children succeed as innovators and problem solvers in the 21st century workplace.  This page lists organizations/commissions that are actively engaged in promoting the Arts in Ewing and some ongoing projects. 

Ewing Arts Commission
