Particularly those who are pleading for new leadership and committed to funding efforts, aimed at effectively ‘bridge the generation gap’ in Newark, New Jersey.” – stated Terrance L.

Becoming a St. Benedict’s Man shares the story of St. Benedict’s Preparatory School, celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2018, and how the school has served the needs of Newark’s immigrant and African American communities.
St. Benedict’s College was established by Benedictine monks in 1868, to provide a Catholic education for the sons of working-class Irish and German families who had fled religious and political persecution. Over the years, St. Benedict’s has mirrored the ethnic composition of Newark, and has welcomed successive immigrants, including Italians, Eastern Europeans, Spaniards, Portuguese, Latin Americans, and Islanders from the Caribbean.
As African American families moved from the rural American South to Newark and the industrial North in the Great Migration in the 1920s and 30s, few enrolled their sons in St. Benedict’s. The exhibit tells the story of how the monks of the Newark Abbey saw the changes in Newark in the years following World War II, and how they interpreted their vow of stability by making a conscious choice to remain in Newark. By the late 1960s the monks and their African American neighbors created an intentional dialogue, which helped shape the school’s commitment to the community, and where today young men of all backgrounds and races graduate as St. Benedict’s men.
The exhibit is curated by Augustine J. Curley, OSB, and Matthew Dellaguzzo.

About the Printers in Residence Program:
For six months, resident artists have unlimited access to facilities at the shop to explore and engage with fine art printmaking processes in order to expand their artistic practice. In exchange for unlimited access to the space, residents attend our weekly open studio Print Club to assist participants and first time printers. Through this exchange, printers in residence further enhance their printmaking skills through education while immersing themselves in the ever expanding art community that frequents the shop during open studio sessions. This exhibition highlights the importance of accessibility to workspace and resources as it showcases work created in an active, cooperative print shop right here in Newark.
ABOUT NEWARK PRINT SHOP:
The Newark Print Shop is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to promoting the fine art of printmaking by providing a vibrant learning community and access to professional equipment and facilities. The shop incubates artistic expression through its educational opportunities, while simultaneously creating workspace opportunities for shop members and artists in our community.
Newark Print Shop is a funded community partner of Express Newark: a Rutgers University-Newark community collaboratory headquartered in the newly renovated historic Hahne & Co. building in downtown Newark, New Jersey and we gratefully acknowledge their support.
