Event Description

In a time of constant change and overlapping challenges, how are Newark’s most creative thinkers working, evolving – and thriving? Join us every Tuesday at 6PM on Instagram Live to have an in-depth conversation with the young innovators who’ve made this city’s tight-knit community one of the most diverse, interesting, and active in the state. You’ll be able to ask them questions about their work, their response to the pandemic, and the Black Lives Matter movement – and learn more about the energy that’s making New Jersey’s largest city so resilient. This week, meet Lisa Conrad, the founding executive director of the Newark Print Shop, a community printmaking facility in Newark. She’s also an artist, art director, and educator. Her works include fine art prints, ceramics, and works on handmade paper. Many of her pieces feature building facades and strive to capture both the evolving cityscape of Newark and the landscape of her own life as she moves around the city.
