OUR 

STORY

The Ridgefield Park Arts Association is a nonprofit 501c3 organization dedicated to enriching life in the community through art in all its forms. By bringing high quality artistic events, projects and activities that encourage creativity and diversity, we aim to make the Village a beautiful and vibrant destination for arts and culture. We believe that the arts are essential to the health and well-being of all people.

The Arts Association is actively engaged in several projects to increase the presence of the arts. Past and current projects include classical and popular music concerts, a master level dance class, downtown art walks, a mural in Vogt Park and on Main Street, an outdoor arts festival (Summer Arts Fest), a rotating art exhibit in the municipal building and a Master Plan for Public Art.

As a volunteer-based organization, we are always seeking volunteers of all backgrounds to help us carry out our mission. We welcome anyone who has a desire to see the arts flourish in the Village. You do not have to be an artist or a performer to volunteer. For volunteering opportunities, email us at ridgefieldparkarts@gmail.com

Meet the Artist

Guillermo Lopez-Pastas

Hello! My name is Guillermo Lopez.  I'm from Colombia but was raised in NY before I came to New Jersey. I am 32 years old and I have a degree in industrial design from Montclair State University.

Art has been a huge part of my life since I was a young kid. Whether I was reading comic books, visiting museums, or viewing paintings and sculptures created by the Old Masters, I was always drawn to the art world and trying to learn more about it.

One great piece of advice I have for new artists is to first enjoy the process of creation; don't get too caught up in the technique. You will slowly perfect your skill later so make it a part of you and make it unique!

Guillermo's mural at Veteran's Park represents his fond memories of Ridgefield Park High School.
