Hudson County Community College Presents "Urban Crossroads: Reimagining Jersey City’s Abandoned Infrastructure"

(JERSEY CITY, NJ) -- Hudson County Community College (HCCC) Department of Cultural Affairs invites the community to a collaborative exhibition that explores the repurposing of what was the economic spine of Jersey City’s industrial past. Rahid Cornejo and Sean Gallagher curated the exhibition, which may be viewed from Tuesday, March 12 through Thursday, April 18, 2019, at the Dineen Hill Gallery on the top floor of the HCCC Gabert Library – 71 Sip Avenue in Jersey City.

“Urban Crossroads: Reimagining Jersey City’s Abandoned Infrastructure” is the result of a comprehensive four-month study aimed at changing the landscape through collaboration, networking, and community activism. Collaborators include New Jersey Institute of Technology’s College of Architecture and Design, Rutgers University’s Master of Landscape Architecture, Jersey City Art Council’s Architecture and Design Committee, and the newly formed Bergen Arches Preservation in partnership with Jersey City Landmarks Conservancy and Jersey City Reservoir Preservation Alliance.

The exhibition of students’ physical models, graphics on boards, and other works showcases potential new land uses and programs of an abandoned corridor in the heart of a growing urban environment for Jersey City’s 2060 Redevelopment Plan. Areas such as the Bergen Arches, the Sixth Street Embankment, Reservoir No. 3, and Liberty State Park are rich with abandoned rail and industrial sites. Exhibition attendees will see how a floating forest and forgotten ravine could link Jersey City to the United States East Coast Greenway.

A reception marking the exhibition’s opening will take place on Tuesday, March 12 from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. There is no charge for admission. The closing reception will take place from 4:00pm to 7:00pm on Thursday, April 18.

The HCCC Department of Cultural Affairs’ 2019 Spring Calendar features an array of visual and performing artists, exhibitions, and programs. The Department of Cultural Affairs welcomes Hudson County community members, organizations, businesses, and school groups to enjoy cultural programs at the College. Groups of 6 to 30 visitors are invited to a FREE 45-minute tour of the current exhibition. Tours may be scheduled by contacting Cultural Affairs Director Michelle Vitale at mvitale@hccc.edu.
