A record number of artists will participate in the upcoming 32nd annual Jersey City Art & Studio Tour (JCAST) with free in-person experiences for everyone to enjoy, including the return of curated bus and walking tours, interactive events, live paintings, kids activities, music and theatre performances, artist demonstrations, “hidden gem” galleries, and much more.
Starting September 29, the four-day festival will feature over 1,000 artists at more than 140 locations spanning the entire city. JCAST 2022 will also feature a live outdoor community painting project for the first time. The community mural hopes to encourage resident participation alongside more than a dozen professional artists.
Discover artists by medium (murals, photography, ceramics, etc.) through the easy-to-search artist profiles on the JCAST website. Information stations will also be easily accessible throughout the city.
JCAST will kickoff on Thursday, September 29 from 6-9pm with an outdoor activation in and around Mana Contemporary that includes live painting, music, interactive installations, galleries, and giveaways.
