ARTfest! in Jersey City’s Journal Square this Thursday

Sustainable JC's outdoor patio parties are back this Thursday. For July we're also hosting Rising Tide Capital's ARTfest 2013 - two events in one. SUSTAINABLE JC continues their SJC Green Drinks + ART series with the usual great music, food and drink, info-sharing regarding sustainability practices and artists sharing their process work. There is a suggested donation of $10 /$5 for students and seniors, which includes a raffle ticket with entry for drawing. The winners receive complimentary lunch for two at the Culinary Cafe.
The bands are TBA - Rising Tide Capital surprise. Chef Rick and his fabulous staff will prepare their usual locally sourced food and drinks. There will be the regular artists talk, with presentations and exhibitions.
ARTfest! is about celebrating the entrepreneur in every artist; many tables will feature RTC's Business Academy Graduates.
Among SJC's visual artists of this edition are Beverly Harris, multimedia artist, who will demonstrate Suminagashi, the Japanese style of marbling; Ibou Ndoye, artist and music-maker, who will demonstrate how to make music with everyday objects; Jazz Amos, master mask-maker will exhibit along with Jordan de Liso, SJC's Eco-Artist in residence, who will display his sculptures made from found and upcycled materials.
The spoken word section will feature Hope Guirantes, SJC's poet in residence.
There will be tabling by community groups, vendors and SJC's education partners.
Sustainable JC thanks their past and present sponsors.
