After celebrating its 30th anniversary in the virtual realm last fall, Jersey City’s Art and Studio Tour (JCAST) returns to in-person art shows, music, and performances this fall. From September 30 through October 3, 2021, the city opens its doors for visitors to explore a large selection of exhibits and arts-related activities featuring over 650 artists.
JCAST is the largest art tour in the State of New Jersey and a celebration of the city’s vibrant arts and culture institutions. This annual art tour is known for offering concentrations of art exhibits across all of its neighborhoods, and for spotlighting work by well-known artists as well as emerging creatives. From university shows to “hidden gem” galleries, there is so much art to discover in Jersey City.
Visitors are encouraged to take advantage of the free bike and walking tours offered Saturday and Sunday, October 2 and 3. All guided tours are free and open to the public.
A full listing of galleries, exhibitions, tours, and special events can be found at thejcast.com.
JCAST encourages attendees to wear masks at all indoor locations. If you have questions about a specific venue’s COVID-19 guidelines, please contact them directly.
