Organization History and Mission

For over four decades, Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center has been a vital community, national and international cultural resource in southern New Jersey. Within its beautiful setting, WheatonArts remains the region’s primary tourist destination and serves as a dynamic center for the arts with ever-expanding programs that capture the imagination of all ages.

WheatonArts, an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution, was founded as Wheaton Village in 1968 by the late Frank Wheaton, Jr., President of Wheaton Industries, which at one time was the largest privately-owned glass manufacturer in the world. The Museum of American Glass is at the heart of the Center, housing the most comprehensive collection of glass produced in America. Located in Millville, the Museum is one of only a handful of museums in New Jersey to hold AAM accreditation. The Creative Glass Center of America, a well established artist residency program, has hosted over 350 Fellows in one of the nation’s first public-access, amphitheater-style hot glass studios. Regionally, the Down Jersey Folklife Center has provided multicultural, multigenerational programs and educational resources since 1995, engaging and serving more than 50 ethnic and cultural groups throughout South Jersey. Studio programs, including the renowned Glass Studio, reflect a dynamic community of resident and guest artists from around the world, who help demystify the creative process, share skills and vision, and provide unique programming for both children and adults. The Center, consisting of 18 buildings, is located in an idyllic 55-acre setting that is its own attraction.

WheatonArts is also a major community resource serving southern New Jersey. We host ongoing educational programs, exhibitions, workshops, performances, artist residencies, several multi-day cultural events and an annual fine craft festival. Programming and events attract over 60,000 visitors annually and over 95,000 people benefit from off-site lectures, demonstrations, lectures, activities in schools, and historical organizations, and other venues. Also, over 2,000 children visit for class tours, for youth programs and for three unique programs targeting at-risk youth, the Glasstown Collective. WheatonArts is recognized by the NJ State Council on the Arts as a Major Arts Organization, “given in recognition of the organizations’ solid history of artistic excellence, substantial programming, and broad public service.” This honor also notes that the Center “stands among a group of organizations across our state that contributes vitally to the quality of life in New Jersey.”

WheatonArts Golf Classic Attendance and Participation

The WheatonArts Golf Classic brings 150 golfers together to support the multicultural, multigenerational programs and educational resources offered at Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center located in Millville, NJ.  

WheatonArts believes the arts must be an integral part of the education of all citizens, with special emphasis on school age children as a part of their basic education.  The Golf Classic provides direct support for the programs that provide this doorway to the arts for students throughout the region.  WheatonArts Golf Classic sponsors and participants make it possible for children to access creativity regardless of household awareness or income.
