“Sustainable Neighborhoods” A group exhibition exploring what makes our neighborhoods sustainable.
If sustainability is defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, then what does sustainability look like at the local neighborhood level? Is it a community where the consumption of fossil fuels and emissions of greenhouse gases are minimized? Does it mean maintaining clean, accessible parks and tree-filled public spaces? Being protected from flooding? Reducing waste? How about safe and reliable public transportation options? Or does it mean having small businesses nearby that you can walk to and knowing your neighbors? 2019 is Jersey City’s Year of Sustainable Neighborhoods and we want to see what that means to you as an artist.
This reception is free and open to the public. For more information about the show, or for submissions guidelines to submit your work, please email Greg Brickey at firstname.lastname@example.org, call (201) 547-6921 or visit jerseycityculture.org/call-for-art/.
