"Transcultural New Jersey: An Arts and Education Initiative" is a yearlong, statewide project documenting the contributions of Latino/Hispanic, African American, Asian American and Native American New Jersey artists through more than 20 exhibitions at museums, galleries and arts organizations. The program is designed to highlight the achievements of artists from historically underrepresented populations and provide insight into the state's diverse population, foster cross-cultural dialogue and understanding, and impact curriculum development and education.

Transcultural New Jersey was developed by Rutgers University's Office for Intercultural Initiatives and the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum in partnership with New Jersey Network (NJN) Public Television. It is supported by the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, Merrill Lynch, JPMorgan Chase, Johnson & Johnson, the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, and the Office of the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, Rutgers University.
