C ov e r : “ Th e Bee Ban n er” In Fall 2013, the Arts Council of Princeton was approached by AvalonBay, the developer of the former Princeton Hospital site, to provide artwork for the temporary construction fence surrounding the site. The banner artwork was conceived and directed by ACP Artistic Director Maria Evans and created by students from two of the ACP’s “ArtReach” (community outreach) programs: Creative Fridays with Princeton Young Achievers (a YMCA after-school program that provides x
arts council of princeton
academic help to children from low- and moderate-income families) and the art classes held at the Princeton Nursery School (a neighborhood educational preschool and childcare facility serving families in need). The “Bee Banner,” which is over 1000 feet long, depicts whimsical blue honey bees at work constructing and deconstructing hives and gathering nectar from flowers. The banner will be on display throughout the construction process.
b ui l d in g com m un i t y th rough t he a rt s The Arts Council of Princeton’s (ACP) mission statement, Building Community Through the Arts, was developed with the belief that the arts and arts education: are fundamental to a healthy society; directly impact academic achievement and improve literacy for school students; positively contribute to the quality of life for all area residents; contribute significantly to economic development; and promote cross cultural understanding and appreciation.

G r e e ti ng s from t he Boar d P r e si d e nt & Execut i ve d i rector Dear Members and Friends, During the past several years, the Arts Council of Princeton (ACP) has gone through a period of incredible growth and change. In prior years, our Annual Report has focused on themes of community, collaboration, and accessibility. These are themes that continue to drive our programming today. From July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014 and beyond, we have strived to increase our outreach to youth and seniors, and to strengthen our impact. In terms of marketing and communication, a major accomplishment during the year was the launching of our new website. We have received wonderful feedback on our new and improved site, which now includes the “ACP Insider” blog and lots more pictures and information than our old site, in a design that is more attractive and easier to navigate. The most important aspect of our new site is not how visually attractive or well-organized it is; it’s the content, which exhibits the wide range of diverse offerings in our programming. We continue to provide a dynamic schedule of classes and workshops, award-winning exhibitions, concerts and performing arts programs, and community events. Additionally, during the past year we have also increased the level of outreach programming to better serve our broad community; in particular, after-school programs for teens and Arts in Healthcare offerings for caregivers and seniors. We launched our new CAPs (Community Arts and Performances) after-school program for at-risk teens; we began a new series of weekly arts engagement activities with Carrier Clinic (a behavioral healthcare facility in Montgomery); we continued and expanded our Art Techniques for Caregivers program; and we increased our Creative Aging offerings, including a weekly artist visit for University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro patients in the Acute Care for the Elderly (ACE) Unit. As this Annual Report is in production, we are also in the process of updating our Strategic Plan. Although it is not yet complete, the strategic priorities identified during a retreat and in subsequent committee meetings include expansion of outreach programs and accessibility for the diverse regional community we serve. In the coming year, we look forward to continuing to improve and expand our many programs, most of which are included in this Annual Report. We could not accomplish all that we provide for the Princeton community without the generous contributions of our members, donors, volunteers, board, and staff. Within these pages you will find numerous acknowledgements as well as statistics on the effectiveness of our work and the financial success we have achieved. Thank you to all of our supporters for your generosity and your belief in the important work we do. We look forward to the coming year and seeing many of you at the Paul Robeson Center and out in the community for our many programs and events. With best regards,
Cindi Venizelos, President, Board of Trustees

EXHIBITIONS “The Arts Council of Princeton is itself a center of influence, as it has encouraged ever-widening circles of art-making in the Princeton area for almost fifty years.” – Ilene Dube and Kate Somers In 2013/14, the Arts Council of Princeton presented nine exhibitions in the Peg and Frank Taplin Gallery, including “Thread Bare” and “Concentric Circles of Influence: Queenston Press,” the latter of which was in collaboration with the Princeton Public Library and the Historical Society of Princeton. Throughout the year, the ACP also featured three exhibitions on the outdoor Michael Graves Sculpture Terrace, three exhibitions in the second floor “Reference Gallery” of the Princeton Public Library, Faculty Spotlight shows, and several other exhibits in various other spaces in the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts. The Robeson Center’s Taplin Gallery is the largest non-commercial contemporary arts space in central New Jersey, which is a vibrant corridor for working artists located midway between New York and Philadelphia. In 2014, for the third consecutive year, we were the proud recipients of the Discover Jersey Arts’ People’s Choice Award for Favorite Art Gallery. A list of all ACP exhibitions can be found on the exhibition page of the ACP website: www.artscouncilofprinceton.org/exhibits.

PERFORMING ARTS “My family loves the performances put on by the Arts Council of Princeton.”– ACP concert attendee in response to an audience survey The 2013/14 performance calendar began with the free outdoor Summer Courtyard Series at the Princeton Shopping Center, presented in partnership with Princeton Shopping Center/EDENS. A wide variety of concerts, films and productions continued in the Robeson Center’s Robert L. Solley Theater throughout the year. We were thrilled to once again partner with Terra Momo Restaurant Group to offer “Sound Bites.” As a generous sponsor of “Sound Bites,” Terra Momo Restaurant Group offered a $2 Tapas to

ticket holders after concerts presenting local and regional artists. In February, the ACP presented the second annual “Cabernet Cabaret” featuring Sarah Donner, Rebecca Mullaney, Joanna Burns and Jason Beckett. The ACP also continued to partner with the Princeton University Jazz Program in presenting Anthony Branker & Word Play and The Yosvany Terry Quintet (with the Center for African American Studies), as well as presenting “Behind the Music” with the Princeton Symphony Orchestra and providing a venue for the Princeton Sound Kitchen and various other performance groups. Theatrical offerings included co-producing the Princeton community play, “Jack and the Beanstalk” in the British Panto style, in February at the Stuart Country Day School’s Little Theater, and Chimera Production’s “Love Song” in July.
t h e ANNE REEVES ARTIST- IN - RESIDENCE “The Arts Council of Princeton is a cornerstone of our town. It’s special and unique, and it makes me proud to live in Princeton.” – Community member in response to an audience survey The Arts Council of Princeton established the Anne Reeves Artist-in-Residence Program in order to annually provide select artists with opportunities to conceptualize and create new works while providing the community opportunities for creative interaction with working artists in all disciplines. The program allows artists in all media to create or complete new works, and encourages them to engage the community in their projects. This past year, the ACP sponsored artist-in-residence James Christy, who developed his play, “Egyptian Song,” during his residency. On December 18, 2013, James Christy presented a reading of the play, which featured Maulik Pancholy and Tala Ashe, and was directed by Juilliard fellow Michael Barakiva.
ARTS EDUCATION “We have attended quite a few art programs in the area, and nothing has compared to the programs and affordability offered at the Arts Council. My daughter cannot wait to take further classes, she so enjoyed the classes with Bob [Jenkins] and Kathleen [Preziosi], and the work they created in class was beyond my expectations and so professional!”— Carole Robbins Arts education is at the heart of our mission of Building Community Through the Arts, and the dedication of nearly 100 professional artist-instructors allows us to offer programs reaching every facet of our diverse community. In addition to our core offerings for children, teens and adults in Drawing & Painting, Darkroom & Digital Photography and Ceramics & Sculpture, we continuously develop innovative programs to introduce new instructors and explore a range of varied media, including collaborations with Girl Scouts of Central and Southern New Jersey, Grounds For Sculpture, Morven Museum and Garden, and Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association. New this year, the ACP launched an after-school arts program at Riverside Elementary School in Princeton, extending our reach to approximately forty-five additional students. The scholarships awarded in 2013/14, totaling over $20,000, helped to keep our classes accessible to the entire community.

COMMUNITY CULTURAL EVENTS “The Arts Council offers wonderful programs and community events. I especially love the diversity and inclusion of families from all economic levels.” – ACP event attendee in response to an audience survey Throughout the calendar year, the ACP organizes free cultural events designed to engage all corners of our diverse community. Working in collaboration with other community organizations such as the Princeton Public Library, Princeton Family YMCA, and the Historical Society of Princeton, the ACP presented many events this past year, including: the Free Fall Open House; the Hometown Halloween Parade; Martin Luther King, Jr. Day; Black History Month; Paul Robeson’s Birthday; and the Spring Fling. The ACP once again organized the popular Teen Open Mic Night under the banner What’s Up Princeton in collaboration with the Princeton Public Library, HiTops, Corner House, and the Princeton Recreation Department.

COMMUNIVERSITY Fe s t ival of th e A rts & P r in c eton A rts We e k e n d “The ACP is invaluable to the residents of Princeton, young and old!” — ACP event attendee in response to an audience survey Once again, over 40,000 visitors attended the largest cultural event in the region, Communiversity Festival of the Arts. The event, produced by the ACP in partnership with the students of Princeton University and the town of Princeton, featured over 200 artists, crafters and merchants, live entertainment, a wide array of delicious food, and many local businesses and organizations. In 2014, the ACP infused even more art into the event, with ACP artists and instructors participating in creative activities throughout the festival. New this year were Streetside Studios, a Community-wide “Monothon” (monotype printmaking), Paint-Out Princeton, and Please Donate the Daisies, an activity involving making flowers out of found materials. Our tried-and-true traditions, Nana’s Make-a-Mess and Chalk Painting, again drew participants of all ages. This year also saw the addition of one more performing arts stage, for a total of six stages ringing out music, dance and performances of all types from every corner of the festival. Knowing where and when festival activities were happening this year was made easier with the installation of iconic 12’ tall ACP information kiosks at several key intersections. Be sure to look for them again next April! All-inall, it was the best festival yet!

OUTREACH “The work Eva [Mantell] does through Arts Exchange is nothing short of a miracle.” – Connie Mercer, Director of HomeFront Through all of our “ArtReach” programs, the Arts Council of Princeton provides high-quality, regularly occurring, subsidized arts programming to community members who would not otherwise receive the benefits of that experience. • Our Arts in Healthcare initiative, Creative Aging, focuses on the delivery of free weekly arts instruction to low-income and infirm seniors in our community and to family and professional caregivers. • Every Thursday, the ACP runs a multidisciplinary art class, ArtsExchange, for a group of approximately 25 children, ages 5-19, in partnership with HomeFront of Trenton, the area’s largest provider of social services to homeless families. ArtsExchange runs year-round and includes a warm meal subsidized by local restaurants and markets. • On Friday afternoons during the school year, ACP offers ArtReach, a program that provides arts instruction to over 120 students in three after-school learning centers managed by Princeton Young Achievers (PYA) and Princeton Nursery School. PYA works with students in grades K-5 who reside in Princeton’s public housing communities, or are otherwise identified by financial need. CAPs (Community Arts and Performances) is a series of workshops offering a wide range of art experiences in disciplines ranging from music, theater, dance, and visual and literary arts, offered twice during the school year to local at-risk teens.

C apita l a nd E nd owm en t Thank you to the many donors who so generously contributed to the expansion and renovation of our Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, which opened in June 2008. Since that time we have been able to more than double our program offerings. The Arts Council’s “5 in 5” Campaign was launched in April 2009 with a goal of raising $5 million over the succeeding 5 years. Our objective was to allocate $2.5 million to endowment and capacity building, and $2.5 million to pay off our construction loan (an effort referred to as the “Burn the Mortgage” Campaign). We were thrilled to celebrate the close of the “5 in 5” Campaign and raise a glass to the future at the Annual Members Meeting on June 19, 2014.
SINCERE THANKS TO OUR CAPITAL AND ENDOWMENT SUPPORTERS We express sincere thanks to the following donors who so generously contributed in FY 2013/14 to our Capital Campaign, in its “Burn the Mortgage” phase.

GALA B ENEFITS “Wow! Always fun, always fresh!” – ACP fundraiser attendee in response to an audience survey In 2013, the Arts Council of Princeton changed the format of our signature fall gala fundraiser, Dining by Design, from cocktails in a large venue with separate dinner parties at private homes, to cocktails and a sit-down dinner in one location. This year’s event, held at Grounds For Sculpture, featured Alexander MacQueeninspired décor, a runway show and a special presentation by teens in the CAPs program. The event attracted close to 400 guests and raised over $100,000 for Community Outreach. Pinot to Picasso, the ACP’s annual spring gala which supports community arts initiatives and the Anne Reeves Fund, was held on April 25th. The event was once again a great success with over 500 guests attending the festivities at the Technology Center of Princeton. The event spanned over two floors and included graffitiinspired art making, dancing and the ever-popular “Tombola.”
Volunteers modeled original “Savage Beauty” headpieces designed by talented Dining by Design committee members.

Paint Out princeton Through the year, the Arts Council of Princeton presented the “Paint Out Princeton” program at several locations throughout the community. Sites included Updike Farmstead, Morven Museum and Garden and downtown Princeton during Communiversity Festival of the Arts. These unique workshops allow painters the opportunity to transform our community’s beautiful grounds into their studio for an afternoon of painting en plein air. The public was invited to visit and observe the artists at work, and a reception was hosted in May to celebrate the works created during Communiversity and at Morven.

MonoThon MonoThon, a community-based interactive art activity featuring techniques used in monotype printmaking, was organized by ACP instructor Kathy Metaxas. A multi-station printing activity was set up during Communiversity Festival of the Arts 2014, and participants had the opportunity to experiment with the monotype print process: color, texture, layering and mark-making. This interactive and “team” approach resulted in a series of prints worked on by a number of successive participants. Kathy and her team of volunteer printmakers assembled the resulting works into amazingly creative collages put on display in the Summer 2014 Faculty Spotlight exhibition.
aMuse This year, the ACP published the 26th edition of aMuse, which featured the poetry, prose and artwork of 86 local K-12 students. The June 12th publication party was standing-room-only, with teachers, parents, family members and friends crowding into the Solley Theater to hear students read their works and view their artwork. Thank you to the aMuse sponsors who made this publication possible, especially Wendy Benchley in memory of Peter Benchley, and to Literary Editor Terry Epstein, Art Editors Maria Evans and Kathleen Preziosi, and Program Coordinator Meghan Blair.
