"Ready Or Not" Exhibit at the Newark Museum

I recently enjoyed a private press tour of Ready Or Not, a new exhibition at the Newark Museum that features the works of 40 NJ-based artists at different points in their careers, varying in practice and style. The curator and organizer of the show, Schlomit Dror, explained the complexities and inspiration behind some of the individual pieces during the tour, as well as gave us an idea of what is coming ahead. Fantastic performances, such as the one of opening night that took place in the 1784 Old stone School House found in the museum's backyard garden. And the upcoming jazz concert happening on July 10th from 3-4:30pm that fuses digital and instrumental sounds for an unique visual experience.
Every Thursday from now through August 7th has a related performance, which are all FREE with the suggested museum admission.
On the final night of the exhibit, September 6th, The NEWARK issue of HYCIDE will launch there, which is super exciting. I almost never miss the HYCIDE launch parties.

Besides all of the fab events surrounding the exhibit, the exhibit itself is really dope! Everything from sculpture to murals to paintings and performances and on-site installations are all included; making it an audio/visual multilevel experience like none I've ever experienced there.
