Trenton's arts-driven revival on display at free city-wide creative showcase
TRENTON, N.J. – August 4, 2015 – Trenton's burgeoning arts scene will be on display in all its vibrant diversity at the fourth annual Art All Day, taking place Saturday, November 14 from noon till 5 p.m. At dozens of Art All Day sites throughout the city, visitors can meet artists of all disciplines and tour studios, art centers, pop-up galleries, and other cool creative spaces.
Art All Day attendees can plan their own itinerary, embarking from Artworks' Everett Alley headquarters and using the free Art All Day map/program, or they can enjoy an insider's perspective on guided trolley, bicycle and walking tours led by guides who are active participants in Trenton's creative revival.
Artist demos and other art-making activities will take place throughout the day at Artworks and other Art All Day sites. A food truck court will operate all day at Artworks, and Art All Day will culminate with a free reception at Artworks from 5 to 8 p.m. featuring the Art All Day participating artist group show.
"Art All Day is a wonderful opportunity to meet local artists and experience for yourself how they are reanimating the neighborhoods and spaces of Trenton," said Art All Day Director Lauren Otis. "You may have read about it, or heard about it, but Art All Day lets you see it with your own eyes," Otis says. "Last year, over 1,000 people visited 29 sites and got the opportunity to visit with over 80 artists. We expect an even bigger turnout this year."
Registration is now open for participating artists and community partners at artworkstrenton.org/art-all-day-applications/. Those who sign up by August 31 can register at last year's low prices. Artists need not live or work in Trenton in order to participate in Art All Day. Those without their own space in the city will be paired with a Trenton-based pop-up gallery. Every Art All Day participating artist is allowed to submit one piece of art for the Art All Day group show in Artworks' main gallery, running November 14 – 28.
