Pro Arts Jersey City is a professional membership community dedicated to advancing and promoting visual artists and their work. Largely volunteer-run, Pro Arts is comprised of roughly 150 emerging and professional artists living and working throughout New Jersey and New York who are actively engaged in pursuing the visual arts as a career.

Volunteering and community-building are key components of the Pro Arts non-profit 501(c)(3) model established in 1994. The camaraderie and friendships that form from collaborating with like-minded people has sustained Pro Arts over the years and built it into a recognized arts leader in New Jersey.
