Passport Projects in collaboration with Submergedart presents Passport Projects Launch Opening Friday October 21 6-10 PM at 210 Market Street Newark NJ.
Passport Projects announces its launch with a group exhibition of painting, sculpture and mixed media. Artists include, Andrew Barron, Dahlia Elsayed, Ryan Higgins Hiroshi Kumagai, Charlee Swanson, Kati Vilim, and featuring the work of Salomon Anaya, curated by Jeanne Brasile and DC Smith.
This exhibition will open in conjunction with the Newark Open Doors. Produced by the Newark Arts Council, Open Doors Studio Tour will take place on October 20-23, 2011. Celebrating its 10th Anniversary, Open Doors is a 4-day arts tour and community event that is the kick-off to a month long city-wide celebration of Newark, New Jersey’s diverse and celebrated contribution to the arts and American culture. Participating each year are over 300 accomplished local, national, and international artists and all of the City’s leading art galleries and cultural institutions. Featured attractions include both professionally curated and juried exhibitions, private artist studio visits, group exhibits, music, dance, and poetry performances, and social events.
Through the collaboration of artists, curators, and creative minds, Passport Projects’ goal is to broaden the scope of the Newark art scene on a national and international level. It is the intention of this project to broaden the awareness of not only area artists and organizations but to as well promote Newark as an up and coming community for the arts in one of the most high-profile and prestigious art fairs in the fine arts industry. The mission of the Passport Program is to present artists at Art Basel Miami in December of 2012.
