"Art is not what you see but what you make others see"


The Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation are excited to announce our latest Engage Toms River Project with partnerships between the Ocean County Teen Arts Festival and Ocean County Salutes.

The 2019 categories for selection are:

  • video,
  • 2D and 3D art,
  • creative writing, and
  • performances (large and small)

There is no theme for the Best in Class, nor do you have to enter. This is simply running behind the scenes at the Ocean County Teen Arts Festival and the winners will be notified after the Ocean County Teen Arts Festival.

Prizes to be Awarded at Salute to Ocean County

At the Salute to Ocean County event there will be prizes for the top performances on the night, with a Grand Prize for the best overall, as chosen by the Ocean County Culture and Heritage Commission.


The “earth” without “art”
is just “eh”
