Art Fag City has published an extensive report on the financial crisis facing the Jersey City Museum. She paints a grim picture of an institution that is vital to the area’s visual arts community:

Jersey City’s only museum showcasing the work of local emerging artists is in dire financial straits. Artists such as Martha Colburn, Amy Wilson, Louis Cameron, Damien Catera have all exhibited at the Jersey City Museum, a public institution with a now uncertain future. On March 30th the museum announced it would slash its hours to only one day a week (Saturday 12-5) to reduce operating costs.
