Join us in celebrating “art in the everyday” in Hopewell Valley!

NEW! Please support the arts in Hopewell Valley this holiday season.

As we enter this season of giving, we hope you will consider supporting the Hopewell Valley Arts Council, enabling us to foster a creative and inspired community. And we’ve come up with two simple ways to do it: #GivingTuesday and AmazonSmile. It’s simple! Here’s how.

The Third Annual Amazing Pumpkin Carve was a blast!

We celebrated a successful Third Annual Amazing Pumpkin Carve, from October 11 to 15 in the newly named Woolsey Park in Hopewell Township. For more on that, visit this link!

A Heartfelt Thank You to Our Sponsors.

Many thanks to the businesses and individuals throughout Hopewell Valley who support “art in the everyday” in our community including those who sponsored the 3rd Annual Amazing Pumpkin Carve!

From a local artist:
As an artist and a local resident, I'd like to thank the Council for this initiative and opportunity. Public art on a street level is a meaningful way to inspire the community and create wonder and excitement in the hearts of people, especially children. James J. Kelewae
