Arts

Creativity and inclusivity abound across Hudson County’s vibrant arts community. Discover contemporary art at Mana Contemporary, an experiential arts center that immerses visitors in the creative process behind art forms like painting, sculpture, dance, photography, and film. During our popular JCAST (Jersey City Artist & Studio Tour) festival, nearly 150 art spaces open their doors to the public for a weekend of performances, installations, studio tours, children’s activities, and exhibits that celebrate Hudson County artists. Art House Productions, creator of Jersey City’s ongoing JC Fridays series, makes free art, music, and festival fun available every quarter.

 

Over in the Mile Square City, HobokenArts features an independent online gallery with fine art, art prints, and products from emerging and established artists who have a connection to the city. In Bayonne, The Bridge Art Gallery also engages art enthusiasts through multi-cultural exhibitions and presentations highlighting local and international artists.

Soak up the lesser-known history behind diverse destinations like Hoboken, birthplace of music icon Frank Sinatra and home to the Hoboken Historical Museum.
