How to help create the longest mural on the East Coast

participate cardThe Newark Downtown District recently announced the launch of the Gateways to Newark initiative, which is intended to beautify entryways into the city. The first “gateway,” to be installed downtown, will be at South Street and McCarter Highway, and looks to be the longest mural on the East Coast.

NDD has invited community members, organizations, and companies to help create a section of the mural on May 17th from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Experience is not required to participate, but the NDD has set an age threshold of 18 years or older.

Individuals and organizational teams can sign up online to participate.
