Princeton University Art Museum Voted Best Place To View Art in 2016

Princeton University Art Museum Voted Best Place To View Art in 2016

In just two years, the NJ Stage Awards have developed quite a following throughout the Garden State arts community.  Designed to help shine a spotlight on arts organizations throughout the state, the complete list of winners for 2016 were announced in New Jersey Stage magazine.  We will be highlighting the winners of one category per day until the end of the year.  This article takes a look at the Best Place To View Art category.

“The Princeton University Art Museum received our gold award as the best place to view art,” said Gary Wien, publisher. “The museum dates back to the 1750s and holds collections of nearly 100,000 works of art ranging from ancient to contemporary art.  Admission is free to the museum, located at the center of the Princeton University campus - just a short walk from Nassau Street.”

The silver award for second place went to Grounds for Sculpture, a 42-acre sculpture park composed of works by well-known and emerging American and international artists in Hamilton.

The bronze award went to Mana Contemporary, a Jersey City arts center featuring contemporary visual and performing arts exhibitions and programming and a community of creatives working in contemporary art.

Awards were chosen by the public via a month-long online vote to find the best places to experience art in New Jersey.  Categories included art, comedy, dance, film, music, theatre, and best town for an arts night out. Over 10,000 votes were cast.

“The public was allowed to vote once a day per IP address,” explained Wien.  “This allowed the smallest of arts organizations the same opportunity as the largest.  We saw venues push voting on their websites, social media pages, and at the venues themselves.”

The top 3 vote getters for each category were listed in New Jersey Stage magazine and on a permanent page of the NewJerseyStage.com website.  In addition, the website features a rotating graphic highlighting one winner at a time and linking back to their website (the graphics will run until the 2017 NJ Stage Award winners are announced).  Individual press releases for each genre will also point a spotlight on the top 3 winners in each category.
