Join us on Saturday, June 23, from noon-2 pm (after the community meeting at 10 am) for an unveiling and celebration of Trenton artist Bentrice Jusu's mural "The Art of Becoming: East Trenton", at the corner of Clinton and Olden Avenues. See the Trentonian articles here and here.
For this project, Bentrice worked with a group of East Trenton teens who were challenged to photograph what they love about their neighborhood. The mural features photos by teens Kiyah Johnson and Sarai Martin, as well as historical images, photographs contributed by neighborhood residents, and Bentrice's photographs of the process.
Special thanks to local printers Blue Ink Studio for the innovative printing and installation!
Thanks to all the residents and volunteers from NJCC, CAPC, Isles, and Aetna Better Health of NJ who helped to clean up and beautify Hart Avenue as part of NeighborWorks Volunteer Week, and special thanks to Trenton-based artist LANK for adding art and color! We picked up two truckfuls of trash and vegetation, distributed 30 flowerpots to residents, and planted hundreds of flowers, as well as beating back overgrown brush and opening up the resident parking lot. What a beautiful, fun start to the summer!
