The largest art tour in the state of New Jersey, the Jersey City Art & Studio Tour (JCAST), is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a four-day extravaganza of virtual programs. JCAST Live! will be held on Zoom from October 1 through October 4, 2020. Featured events include studio tours, art demos, and panel discussions with artists, arts organizations, and collectives from all over Jersey City.
For those looking to get out and explore the expansive citywide art gallery, JCAST has options for open-air, self-guided experiences. These range from a walk through the Jersey City Mural Arts Program (JCMAP) to uncovering “Prayer Flags” in Drawing Rooms at public library branches, and artwork printed on banners in local parks courtesy of “Walk Bye” and the Jersey City Parks Coalition.
In partnership with Jersey City Theater Center, Artivism: An Arts and Social Justice Lecture Series will be held during JCAST weekend’s evening hours. Those looking for rich discussions around topics such as community engagement and the arts, the arts as a catalyst for change, and the arts as a global connector can tune in to Zoom for this series.
“There really is something for everyone, whether you’re new to the arts or a steadfast supporter,” says Christine Goodman, Jersey City’s Director of Cultural Affairs. “By offering our events virtually for the first time this year, I think we will be able to expand our reach so that residents and visitors alike will discover why Jersey City truly is the heart of art in New Jersey.”
ASL interpretation and captioning will be available through Zoom, and participants are encouraged to describe visual content within their events. If you need assistance accessing the online platforms or content, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or email email@example.com if you have other access needs.
