Monmouth Arts established the Arts Education Awards & Showcase in 2000 to recognize and celebrate arts leaders and advocates in Monmouth County who support our mission of enriching the community by inspiring and fostering the arts. Each May, students, parents, teachers and community arts supporters gather for a special evening to honor and acknowledge the power of great art education in Monmouth County.
