Does the thought of mini-golf, beer, and wieners excite you? If the answer is yes, then join us for an awesome evening in Jersey City on Thursday, July 22 where you will have more fun with an art work than should be legally allowed.
Regular readers of Hyperallergic will know how much we L.O.V.E. museums, particularly the small institutions that provide a crucial service to local communities eager to learn more about art. Well, we’ve decided to show our love by doing something … and we would love for you to join us!
As we all know by now, THE JERSEY CITY MUSEUM IS IN FINANCIAL TROUBLE! So, we’re doing our part by organizing an awesome fundraiser on Thursday, July 22 (7-9:30 pm) that includes:
1 — a night of all-you-can-play mini-golf exclusively for Hyperallergic readers, friends, and contributors,
2 — a brief talk by the curator about the mini-golf sculptures & unorthodox exhibition concept,
3 — all-you-can-drink beer and soda, and
4 — all-you-can-eat hot dogs, sausages, and veggie dogs.
And how much is this fantastic summer fundraiser going to set you back? $15!!!! Yes, you heard that right. Advance tickets are $15, and $20 at the door.
The course is located at Hamilton Square in the heart of Jersey City (232 Pavonia Avenue, between McWilliams Pl. & Erie St. — MAP), which is conveniently located by the Grove Street PATH stations — so all New Yorkers can breathe a sigh of relief, yes, there is subway service to the course!
If you’re scared to venture to Jersey City solo, you are more than welcome to join us at Hyperallergic HQ in Williamsburg (181 N11th Street, Suite 302) where a group of us will be gathering at 5:30 pm and leaving for The Golden Door at 6 pm sharp!
The event is generously being sponsored by SILVERMAN Developers of Hamilton Square, who will be providing the food and refreshments for the event. So that means that ALL the money we raise will go directly to the Jersey City Museum … WOOT!
So, get your tickets today! It will be a blast and you will take comfort in knowing that you will be putting the night away with Tri-state art fans eager to support a great cause … ’cuz we all know that Jersey needs some New York love.
