Public art guided tour in Forest Hill
Join us for an exciting public art guided tour in Forest Hill, Newark!
Through 2023, Eirini Linardaki and Melanie Levick-Parkin have interviewed residents of the Forest Hill area to create a series of patterned flag artworks that are suspended outside their homes. The artworks were informed by the personal stories, heritage, environment, and their life in Newark.
The project was a recipient of a Newark Artist Accelerator program grant
About The Newark Artist Accelerator:
Beginning in 2021, in response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on artists, their families, and their communities, the NAA Fund was initially established to provide emergency relief to artists in New Jersey.
The NAA Fund continues to provide immediate need, merit-based funding to artists’ projects and collaborations annually and is committed to sustaining this grant program through ongoing funding from local foundations and donors.
The Newark Artist Accelerator Fund is powered by Project for Empty Space.
Featured Artists: Eirini Linardaki, Melanie Levick-Parkin
