Artworks’ iconic arts festival Art All Night will be moving to a virtual platform and will run from Saturday, August 15th at 3 p.m. until the same time on Sunday, August 16th.
Artworks, producer of one of the most iconic arts festivals in Trenton, had to postpone their festivities earlier on in the year due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Recently it was announced that the event was moving to a fully virtual platform. Artworks Executive Director Lauren Otis stated “As uncertainty continues over when and how New Jersey will recover from COVID-19, the likelihood of holding a festival in August, in Trenton, with thousands of attendees seemed increasingly remote.” The organization realized that it would be irresponsible to make plans for an in-person event, and thus with endless possibilities availed to them, the event has now moved online.
The online platform will result in many changes relative to how artists submit their work to Art All Night; a change that will also affect submissions by filmmakers, musicians and other participants. Artists and other interested parties who would like to submit their work should look to Art All Night Trenton on either Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for more information regarding submissions. Artworks has suggested that individuals looking to submit their work should check these platforms regularly and keep an eye on their website artallnighttrenton.org to receive the most up to date news on the new process.
Art All Night Director Joeseph Kuzemka stated “Art All Night is going to be different this year, but a lot is different around the country and around the world. We’re stoked to be able to present a virtual Art All Night to our audience, enabling us all to connect and interact happily as we celebrate our large, diverse and creative community in the midst of these unsettling times.”
