Newark Museum adds two music-themed events to its calendar
by Brick City Live Staff/February 20, 2017
The Newark Museum has unveiled two upcoming events that merge music, art and community engagement.
On February 24th from 6 to 9 p.m., the museum will host “Masterpiece and Merlot,” a Harlem Renaissance-themed paint-and-sip event. The evening will focus on both the Harlem Renaissance and on the big band movement that followed. Visitors will be treated to an art studio painting session paired with a private tour of authentic works from the era in the Harlem Renaissance exhibition. Tickets cost $40 for Newark Museum members and $60 for non-members–materials are included in the ticket price.
On March 2nd at 6 p.m., the Museum will host a screening of Can’t Forget New Jersey, the first film in the documentary series “Hip Hop’s Great Migration,” which traces the spread of hip-hop from New York City around the country. Presented in partnership with the Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District, which produces the annual Lincoln Park Music Festival, the screening celebrates the 15th anniversary of a historic gathering of hip-hop artists for a “Great Day in Newark,” which was itself a reconstruction of “A Great Day in Harlem,” Art Kane’s famous 1958 photograph of New York jazz greats.
A conversation with the documentary’s creators and featured artists will follow, and will be moderated by journalist Barry Carter of The Star-Ledger. Admission to the event costs $5.
