"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 2016 categories for selection are:

  • video,
  • 2D drawings or paintings,
  • photographs,
  • performances (large and small) and,
  • instrumental pieces .

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.

$8000 in Prizes to be Awarded at Ocean County Salutes

At the Ocean County Salutes event there will be three $1000 prizes for the top performances on the night, with a $5000 Grand Prize for the best overall, as chosen by the Ocean County Culture and Heritage Commission.
