To promote the legacy of John F. Peto, internationally renowned artist, by maintaining his home and studio as a working museum, by fostering educational opportunities in the arts and partnering with the larger community.
STATEMENT BY THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES
We stand with other museums and similar institutions around our country in denouncing systemic racism, injustice, and violence.
We are committed to taking action and continuing to make changes that will bring diversity, equity, accessibility and inclusion to the Museum, our leadership, our membership, and our programs. As we move forward in this work, the Board will seek to:
- promote positive change by holding programs dedicated to highlighting tolerance, diversity, and justice for all, including exhibits that feature the work of under-represented trompe l’oeil artists who are Black, Brown, Hispanic, or Asian, and racially and gender diverse;
- encourage qualified diverse people to become members of the museum and to serve in leadership positions on our board to broaden its perspective and its position as an effective and relevant cultural institution; and
- promote diversity, tolerance, justice, and understanding through our many arts-orientededucational and cultural programs for children and adults.
“To bring about change you must not be afraid to take the first step. We will fail when we fail to try.” — Rosa Parks

by the Ocean County Cultural & Heritage Commission from funds granted by the
New Jersey Historical Commission, a division of the Department of State.
We are a Blue Star Museum
Participating museums across the country offer free family admission for active duty military families from Armed Forces Day through Labor Day.
UPDATE: After careful consideration, the National Endowment for the Arts and Blue Star Families have decided to cancel the Blue Star Museums program for 2020. We will be participating again next year.
