The Jersey Shore Arts Center would be nothing without our founder, the late Herb Herbst.

   The JSAC Mission...

"The Mission of the Ocean Grove Historic Preservation Society, Inc. is twofold: to save and restore the beautiful and historic building (the “old” Neptune High School) that is currently home to the Jersey Shore Arts Center, and to operate the Arts Center in support of local artists and arts educators. The Jersey Shore Arts Center provides affordable programs, events, professional opportunities and work space for artists and arts related educators who in turn develop opportunities for the broader Jersey Shore community to experience and engage with the Arts."


The building that the Jersey Shore Arts Center operates out of was built in 1897 and is still being restored.
