How New Hope Arts Endured through 2020

2020 is history but our experience an exercise in creativity.

The challenge of the COVID-19 crisis brought the community’s necessities into focus, including the need for art and creative expression during times of uncertainty.

 While many arts organizations were paralyzed by the restrictions of the pandemic in mid-March, New Hope Arts immediately started online access for our supporters, regional artists and service organizations. Duringcomplete regional shutdown from March to June:

New Hope Arts invited the community to join in the project of creating and
expressing images to reflect our changing times. We supported the creative
process as an important action to sustain our mission hosting 13 virtual
exhibitions
and showcasing guest curators.

Online Exhibitions - from March through July -

a unique history of virtual exhibitions.

During complete shut down from March through July, New Hope Arts invited the community to join in the project of creating and expressing images in any medium to reflect our changing times. We support the creative process as an important action to sustain our resilience. NHArts is grateful to member artists who spontaneously contributed to our to our ongoing project in extraordinary times.

Jack Rosen - Photographer

New Hope, PA photographer Jack Rosen (1923 - 2006) is considered by many to be one of the best "unknown" photographers of the second half of the twentieth century. Acclaimed primarily for his photos of New Hope and Bucks County, PA, Jack also was an outstanding photographer of celebrities, and his humorous yet telling editorial photos reveal his sense of justice, while appealing to our higher sense of ourselves. Read more about Jack...
