The Visual Arts Center of New Jersey will host a free opening reception for the new exhibit Re:Design on April 8th from 6pm to 8pm.
Re:Design highlights 14 emerging designers who are taking a fresh look at old materials. Part of a generation raised in a world where the continuous production of new objects can be environmentally irresponsible, some of these designers have repurposed old or discarded objects, finding beauty in their history and patina. Others have taken an innovative approach to objects or materials already in production, using them in creative and unexpected ways.
Re:Design will open to the public Friday, April 8th and run through June 5th.
3 Stages of live music featuring performances by Ian Hunter & the Rant Band, The Baseball Project, The Fuzzy Lemons, Goodbye Friday, Frankie Morales & the Mambo of the Times Orchestra, Mad Dog Mary, Bern & the Brights and so much more. Over 300 artists, photographers and crafters will display / sell their work. Lots of great food; kid stuff on 3rd Street, rides, games, face painting & more.
