The Newark Arts Alliance provides the citizens of greater Newark with the opportunity to explore and display their creativity, as well as to participate in cultural events that build community. We do this by offering gallery space for exhibitions, an art gift shop, classes & workshops, regularly meeting art groups and special events. We are “inspiring creativity, innovation, and appreciation of the arts”.
