(SUMMIT, NJ) — The New Jersey State Council on the Arts (NJSCA) recently announced that the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey (VACNJ) would receive a portion of the more than $3.6 million awarded through its new Capital Arts grant program. The program is designed to help nonprofit arts organizations in New Jersey build operational stability and capacity by supporting capital improvement, renovation and new construction projects. VACNJ is expected to receive $159,967 and is one of 38 organizations to have received a grant. The purpose of the VACNJ award is to support the removal and replacement of older, unreliable HVAC systems at the Art Center.

“We are extremely grateful to the New Jersey Council on the Arts for providing this generous grant,” said Melanie Cohn, Executive Director of VACNJ. “The funds made available through this award will enable us to replace our current HVAC systems, which have reached their end of life. The new HVAC systems will allow the Art Center to continue to regulate the environment of our museum artworks and circulate filtered air for our staff and visitors.

The HVAC replacement project has a target completion date of spring 2023.
