Perkins Center for the Arts is a regional, community cultural asset that enriches lives, inspires life-long learning, and offers interdisciplinary and intercultural experiences through the arts. Established as an arts education institution, Perkins provides fine arts and musical instruction, as well as support to working and exhibiting artists. Perkins is dedicated to providing exemplary arts experiences for all community members within the Perkins' programs include comprehensive musical instruction through the Perkins Conservatory of Music; year-round visual & performing arts instruction; 20-24 exhibitions annually; more than 50 free public concerts and ticketed concert series'; artist-led in-school residency programs; Summer Arts Camp; Perkins Folklife Center; and community enrichment projects throughout South Jersey. Originally established in 1977 in the Perkins family manor at 395 Kings Highway in Moorestown (an historic, 1910 Tudor home and carriage house), in 2005 the Center expanded to a second facility in Collingswood, NJ at 30 Irvin Avenue (another historic, 1910 modern-industrial style building). Perkins is proud to serve the South Jersey region six days/week during 50 weeks of the year. Serving more than 42,000 annually, Perkins is honored to celebrate and elevate the Arts in our communities.
