Mount Prospect Students Exhibit at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center

One of my goals, each year, is to display as much artwork as possible outside of our school. This month and throughout the winter, 4 pieces of artwork will be on display in the lobby of the Victoria Theater at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, Newark, NJ. This is a juried exhibit sponsored by the Art Educators of New Jersey, 30 pieces will be exhibited in all. All the artwork is framed under glass and lit in true gallery style.  The Artist's Reception will be Saturday, December 18, 2010 from 11:00 - 12:00 pm.

There are lots of things to do at NJPAC on Saturday, so make plans...
  • Kwanzaa Children's Festival - A day of free Kwanzaa activities, including hands-on workshops designed for adults and children that include African dance, storytelling, Capoeira, and drumming.
  • Kwanzaa Marketplace - NJPAC's annual Kwanzaa Marketplace, free and open to the public, transforms the Prudential Hall Lobby into a holiday shopping stop featuring top vendors from throughout the area.
  • Performance of "Step Afrika"  - at 2:00pm & 5:00pm
  • Performances of "The Rhythm Revue Dance Party" at 2:00pm & 8:00pm
  • to take a walk to the Newark Museum
Congratulations to Malaika & Anvitha (5th grade), Sean (3rd grade), and Mark (2nd grade)! If you are going to NJPAC this fall/winter please make sure to stop by and enjoy the exhibit! All the artwork from this exhibit can been viewed in the AENJ Artsonia Gallery.
