In response to Covid-19, Monira Foundation, Mana Contemporary, The Brooklyn Rail, Pegasus the Orchestra and Pomegranate Arts will partner to provide free arts programming for Jersey City residents, and the greater community on Saturday, October 17th. While many cultural institutions remain closed, Monira will present ​OUTDOORS, LET’S SOCIAL DISTANCE TOGETHER,​ a series of art exhibitions and public programs to create a place for dialogue and cultural exchange between our communities with the support of Mana Contemporary, New Jersey and Jersey City Economic Development Corporation.


The ​OUTDOORS exhibition will feature works by New Jersey based artists to celebrate the reopening of the Journal Square area. Artists will take over Mana’s grounds as their canvas to explore current and urgent subjects such as isolation in a world that needs to be more just and inclusive. Artists include: Justin Brice Guariglia, Tom McGlynn, Ben Keating, Woolpunk, Nancy Nowacek and Rashad Wright.
