Let us know if you're interested in getting involved!

Newport Art House is not a brick and mortar place, but just like the town of Newport itself, it is our place. Our board, community, friends, and neighboring organizations collaborate to create change and promote inclusiveness in the arts.


Newport Art House is a volunteer run non-profit! Do you think arts play a role in why you love Newport? Are you interested in seeing the community grown and flourish? Have some funds set aside for community and place-making projects? We would love your support! Donate below or mail us at:
