Project artist market

Uta Brauser’s vision of a venue for artists, by artists, outdoors with the regular rhythm of a weekly occurrence brought Creative Grove to life, in Jersey City NJ.

An outdoor lounge setting with music by Deejays and musicians recreated a living room or speakeasy environment in the public space. Performances spontaneous or planned, art installations, participatory art projects,  combined with works on display by artists and makers, creatives, designers, artisans, form a meeting place and curious environment for the community.

Pioneering this scenario in Jersey City, it is well described as design for social innovation. Such events weave a net of interaction and lucrative environment, they become a platform for pluralistic expression. The multi faceted interlinking relations grow a strong presence and need in the community

The weekly occurrence throughout the year becomes the life blood of the area, especially with the presence of music.

CREATIVE GROVE artist & designer market has developed the destination factor of Downtown Jersey City, grown pedestrian traffic, it has radiated Economic Development for artists and the community.
