Museum Statement
The Annual Juried Art Exhibition was founded by the Monmouth County Arts Council in 1979 and for 37 years it has been held at the Monmouth Museum. In 2011 the Museum assumed complete sponsorship of this annual exhibition. That year, the Museum opened up the Call for Entries to an international audience. As a result, the Annual Juried Art Exhibition has become a stellar representation of the creative talent and contemporary art trends in all media across our County and State as well as internationally. We are proud to state the Monmouth Museum’s Annual Juried Art Exhibition can embrace the label of a “must see” destination exhibition. We will continue to build on the excellent reputation of this long-established exhibition and champion its success for many years to come.
