Occupy Art Is Going To Newark Open Doors

And on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street day 1,000 and something and Occupy Wall Street is still moving fast. And Black Lives Matter, that all things police brutality and beyond movement is still moving fast also. And so Occupy Art has drummed up another one of those Occupy Art Shows to be found in that New York City area again whenever possible. And this time it's Occupy Art is going to Newark Open Doors, the 14th Annual Open Doors Citywide Arts Festival October 15th - 18th, 2015, to be found in that city of Newark to be found in that state of New Jersey to be found in that country of North America. And that Occupy Art Show @ Newark Open Doors Facebook event invite that Occupy Art created, well that I created, reads something like:

Hi everyone,

Newark Open Doors is happening again this year and I am looking forward to the Occupy Art Show as part of this years 14th Annual Open Doors Citywide Arts Festival October 15-18, 2015. The event space for Occupy Art Show will be at 765 Broad Street, 5th Floor, Newark, New Jersey. Please come to my Occupy Art Show if you are there.

The Occupy Art Show invites you to create your own Occupy Art posters from posters and Occupy Art materials and supplies that will be provided. Occupy Art participants are encouraged to talk about the Occupy artwork they have created through the Occupy Art open mic.

Occupy Art is inspired by the Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter movements to discuss, expand scope, perspective and inspiration towards an ongoing series of future culture jams and events around this theme and time.

Check Newark Arts Council's website for updated details on schedules.

Open Doors is a citywide arts tour and community event that celebrates Newark’s unique and diverse contributions to the arts and to American culture.
