About Riker Hill Art Park
Riker Hill Art Park is a former United States Army Nike Missile Base in Livingston, NJ that was transformed into an art park in 1974. Over thirty artists work in the park, their studios perched high atop the mountain, with breathtaking scenic views. Artists-in-residence work in various disciplines such as painting, fine metal jewelry, ceramics, pottery, glass-blowing, printmaking, photography, weaving, fiber arts, mixed media, and sculpture.
Since the early 1980's artists have worked and taught in the park. Classes and workshops for adults are offered, and opportunities abound for the community to create artwork at the park. Curated exhibitions are held throughout the year, and special speakers and events bring a fresh perspective to the community at large.
