Trenton is your home, and much like a long-abandoned classic car, it only takes a bit of time and some love to make it shine again. Together, we are making that happen! Trenton is a great city, full of history — and it’s time you remember why they put “Trenton Makes the World Takes” across the bridge. With its grand finale on December 31st, in a glorious tribute to the history of Trenton, the Trenton Free Public Library has been hosting the “Fabric of Trenton Exhibit” in the Library’s Rose Garden since July.
Part of the “Inside Out” street art project, which was started on March 2, 2011 by TED prize winner, JR, who called for the creation of a global participatory art project, the “Fabric of Trenton Exhibit” promises to “capture the true essence of the people of Trenton and how they come together to make the city a home,” according to the Destination Trenton website.
Access to the event is free and the days you can enjoy this exhibit are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The library is located at 120 Academy Street in Trenton. The Fabric of Trenton Exhibit is Trenton’s contribution to Inside Out, giving everyone “the opportunity to share their portrait and make a statement for what they stand for. It is a global platform for people to share their untold stories and transform messages of personal identity into works of public art.”
