Event Description

New Arts Justice

A Call to Peace is a public art and history exhibition that asks the central question: What is a timely monument for Newark? Running October 3–November 11, 2019, the exhibition features temporary monuments and artworks; Thursdays Talks with artists, scholars, and activists; an installation in Express Newark; and an interactive research and engagement lab for participants to share their own speculative monument proposals and learn about the complex history of Military Park and the city of Newark.

Featured Artists: Manuel Acevedo, Chakaia Booker, Sonya Clark, and Jamel Shabazz.
