Newark Arts Announces 16th Annual Open Doors Citywide Arts Festival, Deadline for Selections Is August 18

(NEWARK, NJ) -- Newark Arts celebrates the 16th Annual Open Doors Citywide Arts Festival scheduled for October 12-15, 2017. The Call for Official Selections is now open and the deadline is August 18th, 2017. Over four days in October, Newark’s bustling arts scene will explode with an awe-inspiring array of exhibits, screenings, workshops, artist talks, performances, readings, open houses and more!

More than 8,000 participants, 200 artists and 45+ tours and exhibitions at 100 open studios will combine to showcase visual, performing, and literary art. To ensure greater accessibility for attendees, for the first time, Open Doors will be promoted in "Clusters". Each Cluster will include all exhibits, galleries, artist studios and food venues in a focused area of the city on a specific day, making for a more userfriendly experience.

Participants are encouraged to walk and explore!

Thursday – University Hts./Central Ave./Orange Ave. corridor (Fownders to St. Michael’s Med. Ctr.)

Friday – Market St. Area (Gallery Aferro corridor, from University Ave. to Mulberry St.)
