Pop-Up Gallery at Jersey City’s The Enclave
Aug 08, 2019 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PMFree
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.
