The Jersey City Mural Festival
The Jersey City Mural Festival, which is taking place this weekend, is not your typical outdoor art viewing event. This is a festival of works in progress; a festival for the artists themselves. It takes place at three sites. These photos are from underneath the notorious covered roadway that feeds into the Holland Tunnel. It was a dirty, dark and desolate stretch until this army of artists arrived with their cherry-pickers, scaffolds and spray cans.
If you’re reading this on Sunday, June 6, and you’re anywhere near Jersey City, you can head over to Hamilton Park, Journal Square or Harborside and watch these local artists at work.
