Congratulations from our state senator

State Senator Michael J. Doherty.

New Jersey State Senator Michael J. Doherty (R-23rd District) has congratulated Matheny’s Arts Access Program for receiving a $31,152 grant from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. In a letter to Matheny president Steve Proctor, Senator Doherty said, “I commend you for your efforts in maintaining and preserving our cultural heritage while using innovative means to finance these ventures.”

Arts Access enables people with disabilities to create fine art, assisted by professional artist-facilitators. The NJSCA grant was given for “general program support.” It was one of nearly 800 grants given to arts organizations throughout the state in July.
