Part of City-Wide Art Project
The Middlesex County Regional Chamber of Commerce is proud to, once again, be a part of this year’s Windows of Understanding public art project.
The vision for this project – presented by New Brunswick Community Arts Council, Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, The Highland Park Arts Commission and The Metuchen Arts Council – is to transform “main street” spaces into literal windows of understanding; spaces in which the community can learn about the positive strides being made by local organizations around a wide array of social justice issues that don’t make daily headlines.
Windows of Understanding is a creative, community-building response to the negativity and hate being perpetuated in today’s media landscape, according to the project.
Twenty non-profit organizations across three municipalities have been paired with an artist facilitator to create an original work of art.
The works will be on display at venues throughout New Brunswick, Highland Park and Metuchen from January 18 to February 28.
