Jersey City Museum to Curate Beacon Art Fair

Jersey City Museum (JCM) is working in conjunction with the Jersey City Cultural Affairs Office and Victory Arts Project to curate the second annual Beacon Art Fair, open October 2 – 3, 2010.

Continuing with last year’s sensation during the Studio Tour, the 2010 fair will again become a centralized location for buyers to view and purchase works created by established and emerging artists from the metropolitan area. It’s a free event!

The mission of the Jersey City Museum is to present, collect, and interpret American visual art and material culture of the highest quality. The museum places particular emphasis on exhibiting and supporting the work of contemporary artists who represent the diversity of our society, and on preserving and making accessible the art and the historical and industrial objects of significance to the region in its collections. Through its exhibitions, educational initiatives, and public programs, the museum serves as a center of cultural life for the people of Jersey City, Hudson County and the region.

The Museum’s permanent collection features American art and material culture from the region that dates from the colonial period through the present. Works in nearly all media are found in the collection including painting, sculpture, decorative arts, photography, works on paper, furniture, metals, textiles, maps, industrial objects and ephemera.
