Every four months, the businesses in the Benton Harbor Arts District choose a Friday to host an Art Hop. It’s a family-friendly evening filled with an entertaining mix of art, music, dance, theater, culinary arts and more. Come check out the multiple venues along the walkable Arts District streets. Meet your neighbors, talk with business owners and see impressive art. These popular events truly connect people with NTAA’s belief that “Art Builds Community.”
Monthly Open Stage performances at The Livery and an Artoberfest celebration in the fall bring an array of musical genres to the Benton Harbor Arts District. These local and nationally acclaimed artists will inspire you with their passion for music.

The New Territory Arts Association (NTAA) was founded in 1998 to create a vital Benton Harbor Arts District through community outreach and advocacy for the arts. We are a 501(c)(3) grassroots organization dedicated to the revitalization of the Benton Harbor Arts District with a firm belief that “Art Builds Community.”
Donations and NTAA membership dues help us generate the funds we need to organize special and annual events that further our mission. We also provide financial assistance in the form of grants and scholarships for art education programs and events for community youth. Your gift, in any amount, will continue bringing us together to celebrate creativity and innovation. If you would like more information or to donate, please email us today.
NTAA is a 100% volunteer-based organization. We run on borrowed time from men and women that believe change is possible through the arts. Individuals who understand that a little help goes a long way. Whether you would like to help shape our marketing efforts, work on events, collaborate with other art groups or help around the office, we would love to have you join us. Let’s get together soon to talk about your interests.Contact The NTAA
