NEWARK, NJ - A crowd of excited well-wishers gathered inside the Gateway Center in Newark to witness the introduction of a new project to stimulate arts in the region. The Gateway Project held a grand reception and ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the expansion of their gallery space as a permanent arts hub inside Two Gateway Center. 

The event attracted an eclectic array of patrons and artists from every conceivable spectrum, age, ethnicity, gender and interest group; making the audience almost as intriguing as the superb collection of art on display.

On arrival, we were met by BeckermanPR Associate Account Executive Ashlee Blum, who expressed excitement over the inclusion of the Gateway Project as a partner in the facility providing local area art enthusiast world class art, as well as space for artists to live, work and play.

In a prepared statement, Rebecca Jampol, co-director of the Project remarks, “We are thrilled to be expanding opportunities for artists and creative businesses not only at a local level, but by opening more doors with connections nationally and internationally as well. The Gateway Project will be a resourceful arts complex for the City of Newark, comparable to that which one would find in New York City.”

Reportedly, the Gateway Project Expansion is not simply an increased physical space initiative, but also an opportunity for multidisciplinary artists programs to grow. The Gateway Project’s non-profit arm will be organized through its partner organization, Project for Empty Space, which will create spaces and programs that address social issues and inspire social discourse through contemporary art.
