Here's a progress pic.
I've never known of a need to RSVP to Guerilla Galleries' One Gallery events, but I did. If you want to attend, it would be prudent to RSVP, either by email to the address above or by fone to (973) 639-8700. As for the honorees, I know only what I found via Google.
Jones has 20 years of theater and live entertainment management experience in a wide variety of key executive positions at some of New York [C]ity’s most prestigious venues, including the Apollo Theater, Madison Square Garden, Radio City Entertainment, and most recently Disney On Broadway’s The Lion King.
Crossroads Theatre Company, recipient of the 1999 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre in the United States, is the nation's premiere African American theater [right here in New Jersey].
Here are the artists, from Germany, France, and Italy. I published these fotos here in 2004, but they disappeared when AOL closed all subscribers' online storage spaces. Now they're back.
Eight blocks and 2/3 of a mile away, at Halsey and New Streets, there is a second opening reception, at Art Kitchen from 7-10pm. The Newark Arts Council's newsletter describes that show thus.
Photo-Worthy ... February 4 through March 16, 2011. There are times when one encounters a situation that can be labeled as "photo-worthy." These are irreplaceable moments that may never happen again and you are the one that encounters it and then captures it. It’s a quick ten seconds. A blink of an eye. You are the lucky person with the camera that has documented this photo-worthy moment.Saturday and Sunday are this month's free-museums weekend for Bank of America credit and debit cardholders, and the Newark Museum (a participant in BofA's "Museums on Us" program) has its Black History Month exhibits on display, plus the Black Maria Film Festival from 2-5pm on Saturday. Tune in tomorrow for more weekend info.
This last foto today is a closeup of one section of the mural in progress, showing the lines ("cartoon") that were laid down before the painted detail was added. Note the foto from which the artists were copying from a Renaissance-era artwork. For more information about the process used in this mural, see my post of October 20, 2004.
