In its 23rd year, the Annual

Every year, hundreds of artists participate in the tour attracting thousands of visitors during its two-day

“Jersey City’s artists are a vital part of our community and we encourage everyone to join us in celebrating their creativity and supporting the arts,” said Mayor Fulop. “We recognize how important the artists are to the vibrancy of our city, and not only do we embrace the arts, we are working to expand the role of art in our community. The administration just launched a citywide mural program and we are exploring additional ways to expand opportunities for our visual and performing artists.”

Group exhibitions will also be held at Panepinto Galleries at 371 Warren Street, The Drawing Rooms at 180 Grand Street, and at the new downtown gallery Freshly Printed at 383 Monmouth Street.

Also not to be missed is this year’s Hispanic Heritage Month group exhibition show at City Hall, which features several local artists and celebrates the contributions of Hispanic Americans to our great nation.

At 150 Bay Street, art will be showcased at two dozen open studios, and the site will also be host to this year’s Studio Tour Closing Party featuring a performance by blues rocker Eliza Neals on Sunday, Oct. 6th, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m
