Art Activates - Alley Mural Project

Art Activates is a Jersey City based beautification project that seeks to breathe new life into the unadorned walls, abandoned lots, and forgotten spaces within our community through the practice of art. Whether the action is paint or sculpture, temporary or permanent, the ambition of our efforts is to draw the issue of urban blight into the public discourse through art. Each art action begins with a community led clean-up and site greening. Neighbors, business owners, and fellow artists come together to clean, prep, and prime the walls.

Currently Art Activates is focusing the engaging power of public art to remediate the Embankment Alley & Third Street Alley between Monmouth and Coles Streets. Three community clean-up have been staged in June 2012, April 2013, and September 2014. Bringing together residents and artists to positively impact their neighborhood.

There are no current or upcoming events for this venue.
