ArtPride at the League!

The ArtPride NJ Foundation is proud to co-sponsor a booth and seminar at the 2007 NJ League of Municipalities Conference in Atlantic City from Nov. 13-15.

Secretary of State Nina Mitchell Wells will moderate a distinguished panel of municipal leaders including Jeff Buehler, State Coordinator, Main Street New Jersey; Director, Office of Smart Growth; Jean Holtz, Vice President, New Brunswick Development Corporation; Trustee, ArtPride NJ Foundation; James Quinn, Mayor, City of Millville; and Michael Wildes, Mayor, City of Englewood. The panel will discuss how New Jersey leaders have built more vibrant communities by investing in the arts including success stories driven by community arts partnerships.
