This week on State of the Arts, check out the homegrown cultural scene of historic shore town, Atlantic City. At 48 Blocks AC, artists and performers share their creative spirit with the community. The formerly homeless women of MudGirls Studios produce pottery and tiles, making a living and a life in the process. Photographer Brian Rose explores Atlantic City’s high-rise casinos and its older neighborhoods. Plus, Chicken Bone Beach Jazz presents concerts on the beach, and a visit to the African American Heritage Museum of Southern New Jersey at the Noyes Arts Garage.

State of the Arts goes on location with the most creative people in New Jersey… tune in every week on NJ PBS, WNET, and ALL ARTS.
