Mendacity is a noun that connotes a persistent state of dishonesty, hypocrisy, and audacity.

It certainly indicative of our current political and social climate.

What if we just changed the accent to the first syllable and said it slowly? It then becomes

MEND- a-City – a goal that requires honesty, transparency, and courage.

MENDaCity is the title for one of Artfront Galleries’ shows that will be part of the Newark Arts Festival October 9 through 13, 2024. The site will be Newark Local Beer, 538 Broad St.

Artfront is seeking artwork that examines this contradiction. We inhabit a world of alternate

facts creating deep chasms dividing us. But we can also envision art shining a healing light on

the truth. Street artists are the true prophets so we are especially interested in work with that

vibe – just no profanity please.

If interested, please submit JPG images using this naming convention



Unfortunately, we cannot consider sculpture or videos.

Deadline for submission to is Friday August 23, 2024.
