Streets 2k7

Celebration of public art in New Brunswick

Streets 2k7 will coincide with the opening of Raritan River Art Walk – a joint project of the City of New Brunswick, the New Brunswick Arts Council and Albus Cavus. The Art Walk is a 2-mile long path located on the waterfront.

Streets 2k7 is a weekend-long family event, May 12-13, during which local residents together and artists will transform this neglected path of the city into an extraordinary outdoor gallery of public art.

This open and participatory event is a part of a larger experiment in an innovative approach to the revitalization of a neglected public space. We envision art to be the driving force in changing this abandoned bike path into a space that will become widely used by the community for social interaction and recreational purposes.

We invite everybody to participate in this event as artists, volunteers, or audience. Come paint or help clean up the path. Take a walk along the path and enjoy the river life and the art on the wall. Watch street performers and artists demonstrate their skills, and more. While in New Brunswick, do not forget to check out the Coexistence Exhibit spread throughout the city.

If you are an artist, do not hesitate to contact us for information how to be part of the Art Walk.
