The ValleyArts District is the result of an amazing revitalization concept which has transformed the township of Orange, New Jersey. Orange had once been a thriving manufacturing center, but many jobs were lost when local factories closed. It is now a vital and dynamic center for the arts, both performing and visual. Artist apartments and studios, classes, galleries and festivals are a part of this new arts district.
