Yesterday, I stopped by the JCAST 2012 Kickoff Party space. I was told I had to help set up in order to get some exclusive (or not-so-exclusive) footage of the space. To say that I was blown away by the amount of work by the Jersey City arts community that went into the Tenmarc space is an understatement. An under-understatement even. Everyone who is planning on attending the Kickoff Party tomorrow evening is sure to be in for a treat. Amazing structures built by Michelle Mumoli, Thomas Carlson, Anne McTernan, and others are just as beautiful as the artwork that hangs on them. And of course, illuminations by light architect Norm Francoeur never fail as being some of the best lighting design around. Multiple art communities such as Jersey City Art School, Not Yo Mama's Craft Fairs, _gaia Studio, Pop-Up Art, and others also have artwork to display and enjoy.
There aren't enough superlatives to describe the space. You really just must go tonight.
(Shuttles from Grove Street PATH will take out-of-towners to the event space, by the way.)
