West Orange Chamber of Commerce Sponsors Networking Event

October 10, 2013 at 12:16 AM

WEST ORANGE, NJ - The Valley Arts Firehouse Gallery was filled Wednesday evening with members of the West Orange township, business and arts community in the latest West Orange Chamber of Commerce's Meet and Greet event.

Along with the Friends of Edison, Downtown West Orange Alliance and Valley Arts, the West Orange Chamber of Commerce event drew community members new and old to gather, meet, and connect. Attendees enjoyed the Otto Neals Art Exhibition as well as artist Kerri Knowles' Video Art Installation.

The Valley Arts District not only works to provide food and entertainment venues like Hat City Kitchen and Luna Stage, it has also received federal grants to refurbish and revitalize buildings in the area that are being occupied by professionals and artists from all over North America. The revitalization of the Valley Arts area, which straddles the West Orange-Orange border, continues to be a growing success, similar to the revitalization of the Park Slope area of Brooklyn in the 1980s-2000s.

It is not really ...
