Asbury Park has always provided that catharsis through music, movies, galleries, theater and dance. People come from across the globe to laugh, cry, applaud, eat, drink and enjoy the human experience. That participation led to the rebirth of our City through the discovery of its artistic energy.The Asbury Park Arts Council provides the encouragement support and resources to not only have the arts survive, but thrive.

Asbury Park Arts Council's programs are sustained through the generous support of private, institutional and corporate partners who share our vision of an Asbury Park where all creative practices can thrive and coexist.
