HISTORY

Art House Productions (AHP) sprung from the desire to connect a devastated community through art and dialogue after September 11th, 2001. Since then, AHP has established itself as a pioneer of artistic and cultural programming in Hudson County. Now in its 16th year, AHP brings Northern NJ audiences a professional season of theatrical performances and visual art exhibitions as well as the free, city-wide arts festival, JC Fridays. Art House Productions has significantly influenced the advancement of the arts community, acting as one of the major pioneering forces for the arts in Jersey City. In 2007 Art House became incorporated and was granted nonprofit 501(c)(3) status. In late 2007, the organization was presented with the Key to the City and an official Proclamation for its outstanding contributions to the City of Jersey City, NJ.



OUR MISSION
Art House Productions engages, inspires, entertains and challenges audiences with high quality visual and performing arts programs; we provide arts education programs that promote life-long learning to a diverse community; and we celebrate the essential power of the arts to illuminate our common humanity. AHP provides a home for innovative performing, visual, and literary artists to develop new work. We present emerging and under-recognized artists who are making significant contributions to their respective fields, and serve as a safe space for established artists to take creative risks. We are also a place where young people can find their voice through our theater education programs.



OUR VISION

The vision of Art House Productions is to be recognized as a destination for the performing and visual arts in Jersey City, where our varied and abundant arts scene creates a vital community that attracts and welcomes artists as educators, entrepreneurs, mentors and citizens.
