Hanini Group, along with a group of businesses and organizations in Newark, are co-sponsoring Four Corners Public Arts, which is set to activate parts of Downtown Newark with “impact-driven, public art initiatives.” The first phase of the project is a series of art murals. The project website, which recently sent out an RFP for mural ideas, stated:
“The partnership evolved out of a common interest to renew blighted areas through the arts, with the goal of cultivating creative communal space for everyone. The initiative will also help mitigate the growing pains associated with development in progress, or construction zones. This alliance feels strongly that, in a time where Newark is changing, part of their work must include creating opportunities to strengthen the local creative community.”
We will provide more updates on this exciting project! Stay tuned.
