More Info

The John F. Peto Studio Museum stands on the threshold of a momentous opportunity. We need your help.

The Peto Museum is a vibrant hub of artistic and community activity.  Peto’s studio is one of only a handful of renowned artists’ studios nationwide, along with the studios of Georgia O’Keeffe, Jasper Johns, Andrew Wyeth, and Winslow Homer.  We are committed to the preservation of this historic site and its continuation as a cultural center. 

Our benefactor, who owns the Museum building, has generously offered to donate the building and grounds to us.  He has imposed one condition: we must raise $300,000 to be used for the sole purpose of preserving the building’s interior and exterior in its present outstanding condition.

We have currently raised $265,000 towards this goal through volunteer Board member fundraising efforts.  If we fail, the building will be given to another non-profit, and the Peto Museum will be forced to close its doors forever.

Please help us continue Peto's legacy and provide a first-class arts and cultural heritage experience to the people of New Jersey and beyond.  Any donation will help make an impact. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause, which means so much to our nation's art community.
