Artist Studio Tour This Weekend

This weekend, local Jersey Artists will open up their homes and galleries to the public to show off their artwork and their studios. The event kicks off Friday night at Grace Church on Erie Street. Then on Saturday and Sunday, between noon and 6pm, galleries and studios are opened to the public throughout the city. This is the 19th studio tour.

On Saturday there will also be the 4th Street Art and Music Festival, from noon until 10pm. In the past, the festival has acted as a focal point for the studio tour with many visitors beginning or ending their day there. The festival is at the intersection of Fourth and Newark Avenue. The 4th Street festival will include music and performance art.

Friday is JC Fridays

Friday is the March edition of JC Fridays. Events are planned throughout the downtown, including several gallery openings and art shows at various bars and cafes.


Down the Rabbit Hole Opening Night

Megan Gulick's solo show featuring furry animal paintings opened last night at LITM. The show runs through the end of March.

Fuzzy bunnies were in attendance. Apparently some of the LITM staff "lost" their fuzzy ears

Megan Gulick, downtown painter, is opening "Down the Rabbit Hole" tonight at LITM, the Newark Avenue bar-lounge-gallery. The show features 45 to 50 paintings of furry bunnies being abused as well as more colorful fish and barnyard animals. More importantly, we've been assured that at tonight's opening-- 7 to 10 PM, there will be a full sized, pink, furry bunny rabbit. In a stockade. Still not convinced? Check out

PAD Development Breeds Artwork

anti-development artwork installed in Jersey City's Powerhouse Arts District

The Toll Brothers plan to build high rise towers in the Powerhouse Arts District may have killed the law protecting the arts centric neighborhood, but its also lead to more art. Anti-development, anti-capitalism paintings have been installed across the street from the historic Manischewitz warehouse.

Perhaps there is still life left in the PAD.


Viral Marketing or Simply Graffiti?

Taco Bell and Burger King symbols have begun appearing around downtown Jersey City

Logos for fast food chains Burger King and Taco Bell have begun appearing around downtown Jersey City, such as the marks seen here. This fence was recently cleaned of graffiti that read "honkey begone" but is now covered in the multicolored adverts. Its unlikely that the fast food chains are involved in vandalism.

Unicorns Attract Attention

A JCLister posted a photo of the Fourth Street Unicorn. This in turn lead to semi-relevant blog Boing Boing picking up the story. This in turn lead us to those responsible for the unicorn, a seemingly hipsterific community of artists, The Agitators. The Agitators described themselves as "a collective of vibrant individuals setting out to engage the Jersey City community as a creative asset."

Museum Madness

The Courier Post has a short fluff piece discussing the Liberty Science Center makeover. In case you missed it, the 22 month long expansion nearly doubling the museum finished up this summer and the museum reopened.

Meanwhile, over at the Jersey City Museum, reports on a performance of Tortilla Heaven staring Jade Esteban Estrada, as part of Hispanic Heritage Month.

And in case neither of those interest you, Friday is JC First Fridays with art, performance, and retail events planned throughout the downtown.
