I remember a New Yorker cartoon, maybe twenty years ago, of a guy covering his nose as he ran across a bridge, smokestacks billowing black clouds into the soot-dense air. The caption was, “Houdini escaping New Jersey.”
Well, New Jersey is HAPPENING. Not only their universities, seaside wonders which are recovering from Sandy, restaurants, shopping, but Art. Art in Jersey City. Check out MANA Contemporary, a museum that invites artists from all over the world to work in studios inside the museum, network with each other, and the U.S. art scene. It’s a collaborative community that brings together art, music and dance.
