With art crawls outdoors the aim is to celebrate art in the public space,
vitalizing the neighborhood with activities, art on display, installations and community interaction by the many local artists in the area.
Bushwick in the Jefferson Street x Wyckoff Ave area is very populated with artist studios, an art crawl brings attention to the artists, and connects the community with the artists and the public.
The event took place at the same time with the Bushwick Collective Block party, bringing a new series of murals of street art and graffiti to the walls on Troutman and adjacent neighborhood, with music and vendors, Troutman and Scott Ave.

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.
