Space is Limited and Tickets are Required for the Free Public Event From 6 to 9 p.m. on August 8th at 260-Home Building at 675 Monmouth Street
Ron English, the wildly popular artist whose unique style mixing superheroes and comic strips with art history has made him one of the country’s most recognizable artists, is putting the finishing touches on his newest public work in Jersey City – a 60’ mural located at the intersection of Erie and 16th Streets.
The artwork is the latest installment in Jersey City’s renowned Mural Arts Program and its completion will be celebrated with Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop during a free public POP-Up gallery on Thursday, August 8th within The Enclave rental building at 675 Monmouth Street. Space is limited for the evening event and tickets are required to attend. Free tickets are available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/popaganda-jersey-city-pop-up-tickets-66604113697.
The special cocktail event will be highlighted by banner art from Mr. English, who describes his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones as “POPaganda.” Found throughout the world as street art, in museums, in movies and books and television, his unforgettable works captivate audiences with an arsenal of original characters, including MC Supersized, the obese fast-food mascot featured in the hit movie “Supersize Me,” and Abraham Obama. The gallery will also feature “POPaganda” merchandise for sale.
Sponsored by the development team behind The Enclave, BNE Real Estate Group, Hoboken Brownstone Company and McKinney Properties, the event will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on the building’s indoor/outdoor rooftop amenity deck.
“Ron English is one of the best street artists in the world who lived in Jersey City for some time,” Mayor Fulop said. “It is great to have him back in our city as part of the Mural Arts Program, which has become one of the best in the country.”
Initiated in 2013, and funded by a Clean Communities Grant, the Jersey City Mural Arts Program (JCMAP) is a Mayor’s Office Initiative that links established and emerging local, national and international mural artists with property owners citywide. The acclaimed public art program currently showcases nearly 140 murals citywide created by artists from 16 countries, 7 U.S. States and dozens of Jersey City’s local artists. The Mural Arts Program has grown in prominence and notoriety, attracting named artists – such as Kobra, Shepard Fairey, MadC, and Pixel Pancho – and establishing Jersey City as a top U.S. urban area for renowned public graffiti and street art.
The Mural Arts Program has commissioned works that support local art and beautify neighborhoods by programming public spaces with outdoor paintings that deter graffiti and incorporate the cultural and historical aspects of different neighborhoods. The Ron English mural, and others like it in Jersey City, offer accessible, authentic artwork that can help enhance and re-energize neighborhoods through creativity and aesthetic beauty.
