The Arts Council of Princeton will also host “We Must Not be Forgotten”: Witherspoon-Jackson Community Salute to Educators, Youth, Arts, Entertainment, Culture and 1948 Princeton Plan as part of The Joint Effort Safe Streets Program. This community event is free and open to the public, and immediately follows the Opening Reception of Changing Faces by Aaron Fisher.
The Safe Streets Program- in partnership with the Witherspoon-Jackson Historical and Cultural Society, many Princeton businesses, community leaders, community organizations and citizens – will celebrate the historic designation of the Witherspoon-Jackson Community as the 20th Historic District in Princeton, New Jersey. This Princeton community celebration of the Witherspoon-Jackson Community will share stories of community, faith, hope and history.
The Arts Council of Princeton, founded in 1967, is a non-profit organization with a mission of Building Community through the Arts. Housed in the landmark Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, designed by architect Michael Graves, the ACP fulfills its mission by presenting a wide range of programs including exhibitions, performances, free community cultural events, and studio-based classes and workshops in a wide range of media. Arts Council of Princeton programs are designed to be high-quality, engaging, affordable and accessible for the diverse population of the greater Princeton region.
