As people return to work in Newark, they will find the cityscape transformed by murals, installations, new galleries, large-scale artwork in public parks, corporate spaces and more. And the decisions about where art belongs, and what artists are elevated, are now being made by a collaborative and inspiring group of women leaders, from both the public and the private sphere, who are identifying, celebrating and supporting local women artists to redefine what this city looks like.

Join Women@NJPAC for a morning of networking and conversation, as we take you on a virtual tour through Newark’s art-infused neighborhoods, both downtown and in Newark’s Wards.

Our conversation was live-streamed. Watch below.

Wednesday, December 1, 2021
9AM-10AM: Breakfast and Networking
10AM – 11AM: Leading Ladies Panel: Reframing Newark Through Art
