On June 15, 2021 the Ocean County Cultural and Heritage Commission, in conjunction with Ocean County College and the Jay & Linda Grunin Foundation, will present the tenth annual Salute to Ocean County: A Celebration of Arts and Heritage. This event—which is free and open to the public—will honor Ocean County’s outstanding cultural organizations, and recognize exceptional local artists, historians, preservationists, educators and government leaders.

In addition to acknowledging the recipients of the Commission’s Local Arts and History Program Grants, the evening will feature awards for distinction in the arts and history, and performances by students Critiqued for Excellence as part of the 2021 Teen Arts Festival of Ocean County. The Teen Arts Festival is a prominent showcase for young artists. Students from a selection of local high schools in the county exhibit, perform and present their work, which is then critiqued by professional artists from throughout the state.

Other highlights of the evening will include the Pauline S. Miller Lifetime Achievement Award for Ocean County History, a Lifetime Achievement in the Arts in Ocean County, and the Ocean County Cultural Response Award.
