It’s still raw and very much in a formative stage, but a surprisingly-large, and growing, community of artists is establishing the sort of presence in Trenton that was starting to feel unimaginable. More improbable still, it’s not a hostile takeover in the name of some short-term attention. Just the opposite, in fact.
The unemployed mill about Trenton’s East Hanover Street, creating the impression, upon first sight, that something’s about to happen. But it’s the middle of a prematurely-darkening Wednesday afternoon in February, so it’s clear, once the senses settle, that nothing will.
Parking meters flash beside a dozen cars. They’re the most modern detail of the block. Many of the decaying, three-story, brick and concrete buildings that flank the street haven’t been inhabited for years. How long before an abandoned building is boarded up?
About the Exhibit
Leon Rainbow is definitely one of the most prolific artists in the central Jersey fine art and graffiti scenes. His work is widespread – from street art to murals to commercial pieces, you gotta admire Leon for his hustle as much as his art. His art is great too – fresh, original, ambitious, and infused with that strange sense of humor that Rainbow always brings around. This exhibit will be a retrospective of his works from 1999-2013, a rare chance to see a large collection of his work in one place.
