Our New Home at Art150 Bay!
After much anticipation due to COVID-19 construction delays, Pro Arts Jersey City has officially begun its tenancy at ART150 located at 150 Bay St. in the middle of the Powerhouse Arts District. The entire second floor of this historic building has been transformed by GFP Real Estate into 57 affordable artist studios, a community lounge, and a kitchen and workspace for studio tenants. Additionally, another fully equipped kitchen with storage area, an office/meeting space, and a huge gallery will be shared by Pro Arts, Jersey City Arts Council, and Art Fair 14C!
With a long-awaited home base, Pro Arts can more effectively contribute to Jersey City’s arts community and general public with our own exhibitions and professional development events. Pro Arts premiere exhibition in our new gallery will be The Empowering, curated by Danielle Scott. The show will be installed from February 6 – March 21, 2021.
At present, the gallery space is approximately 2700 sq ft inclusive of kitchen and storage. If you are interested in renting a studio space and/or reading more about the project, please visit https://150baystreet.com/studio-space/ or call 201.795.9200.
Help us furnish and equip the gallery and office!
After 30 years of functioning as traveling nomads we have managed to acquire VERY LITTLE in the way of material possessions; relying instead on the materials and supplies of our host or volunteers. But NOW is the time for us to rally together to provide the necessities for running the top notch art gallery that we all deserve.
Please consider helping us outfit this joint! All things used and new will be greatly appreciated.
