At Newark Arts annual meeting Tuesday, June 13 Artfront Galleries was awarded one of its prestigious ArtStart grants.
Artfront Galleries will use this grant to expand upon our well established relationship with the Newark Housing Authority. In the Fall 2017 and the Spring 2018 we will create a series of multi-week art galleries in the NHA Recreation Centers: Waterfront, Clubhouse, and TREC. Each gallery will include an artist talk and a community art event. Student interns will learn the “business of art”. Primary among the many benefits is to bring rich cultural experiences to the under served populations of Newark in the North, western edge of Central, West and South Wards.
Artfront Galleries appreciates Newark Arts recognition of the important work we do to make Newark the next East Coast art destination.
