By Sally Deering
It’s probably the hippest church
in Hudson County: a congregation of people from all walks of life, where artists
are not only welcomed, they’re celebrated.
On Sat, May 8, beginning at 7 pm,
Grace Church Van Vorst on Erie Street in Jersey City will host its 30th
Anniversary celebration of the CATHEDRAL
ARTS FESTIVAL (CAF), a gala of friends and community members coming together
to support the church’s outreach and regale in artworks by local artists. This
year, five curators have put together an exhibition of eclectic art that will dazzle
and inspire. Beth Achenbach, Cat Hecht, Robinson Holloway, Andrea Morin
and Amy Elise de Jong.
A life in art, that’s exactly what William La Rosa set out to do in his 30-year tenure as Director of the Hudson County Office of Cultural Affairs. Before retiring in September 2017, La Rosa facilitated programs that helped local visual and performing artists. He founded the Local Arts Program (LAP) grants that, over the years, provided thousands of dollars to local artists and arts organizations.
