Film Premiere: Mr. Turner


Directed by: Mike Leigh

Starring:  Timothy Spall, Paul Jesson, Dorothy Atkinson

Mr. Turner explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies. Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.

We live in a world full of information, and sometimes that makes it hard to make your voice heard. Stories have the power to unlock the data and not only tell us what it means, but how we should feel about it. As a brand, it’s important to actively curate the stories you are putting out there, using sight, touch, sound, smell and emotion to connect with your audiences. This case study workshop will use real-world marketing and branding examples from The Collective Art tank and Monmouth Arts to demonstrate how to use storytelling to amp up your promotions. Tammy’s workshops are lively and conversational, with something for all levels of expertise. Spots are limited to 20, so reserve yours today!

Monmouth Arts Receives National Endowment for the Arts Challenge America Fast-Track Grant to Support the MoCo Arts Corridor


DATE: December 16, 2013

CONTACT: Mary Eileen Fouratt 732-212-1890 ext. 2 

Red Bank, NJ]— National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Senior Deputy Chairman Joan Shigekawa announced today that Monmouth Arts is one of 150 not-for-profit organizations nationwide to receive an NEA Challenge America Fast-Track grant. Monmouth Arts is recommended for a $10,000 grant to support a marketing initiative for the MoCo Arts Corridor, a cultural tourism campaign to promote Coastal and Bayshore Monmouth as an arts destination. The project will focus on traditional and new media marketing efforts for arts organizations in the 39-town region that was severely impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

The Challenge America Fast-Track category offers $10,000 matching grants to support projects that extend the reach of the arts to underserved populations whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by geography, ethnicity, economics, or disability. Challenge America Fast-Track grants support two major outcomes: public engagement with diverse and excellent art and livability, or the strengthening of communities through the arts. In this FY 2014 funding round, the NEA received 294 eligible Challenge America Fast-Track applications requesting $2.94 million in funding. The NEA will award 150 Challenge America Fast-Track grants totaling $1.5 million to organizations in 46 states, including 33 first-time NEA grantees, or 22 percent of all CAFT grantees in this round.

Jim Hickey, Monmouth Arts Board Member and Chair of the MoCo Arts Corridor Partnership said: “We are very excited about receiving the NEA Challenge America Grant. The MoCo Arts Corridor Partnership was formed with the knowledge that Monmouth County is rich with artistic and cultural resources and that the Arts can be a powerful economic engine for the good of the entire region. Our goal is to share that knowledge throughout the state, the country, even globally to accomplish our mission of making ‘the Jersey Shore a cultural destination of choice.’ The NEA grant will go a long way toward helping MoCo reach that goal.”

Mary Eileen Fouratt, Monmouth Arts Executive Director noted: “The MoCo Arts Corridor Partnership is a coalition under Monmouth Arts of artists, arts groups, municipal art councils, creative businesses, local and regional tourism offices, County Economic Development, Tourism and Planning Departments and NJ Transit. The project will build on the vibrancy of the strongest art hubs in this region (Asbury Park, Atlantic Highlands, Belmar, Manasquan and Red Bank) to develop the art assets of the other towns and market the region as an arts destination. The vision is to cultivate a place that provides a quality experience for artists, residents and visitors, reflects the diversity of the County, provides accessibility to the arts and fosters livable communities. We thrilled to have been awarded this grant to further this work.”


Axelrod Performing Arts Center

“The NEA was founded on the principle that the arts belong to all the people of the United States,” said NEA Senior Deputy Chairman Joan Shigekawa. “We’re proud that Challenge America Fast-Track grants bring more opportunities for arts engagement to underserved communities.” See the complete listing of projects recommended for Challenge America Fast-Track grant support at

Monmouth Arts supports artists and arts groups through networking, workshops and resources; the Monmouth Teen Arts Festival bringing 2,000 student artists together with professional artists; the Local Arts Grant Program providing $90,000 in grants for nonprofit arts groups; and by publicizing the incredible range of performances and exhibitions available to the public in Get Out Get Art eblast and on Monmouth Arts programs and the groups we support serve over 800,000 people each year and bring over 2,900 high quality, low cost arts events to Monmouth County.

Monmouth Arts enriches the community by inspiring and fostering the Arts. The vision of Monmouth Arts is a vibrant arts community that enhances the quality of life throughout the County.

This program is made possible through funding from the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders, through the County Historical Commission, and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment of the Arts.
