Artists Explore the Staten Island North Shore

June 30, 2002 -January 12, 2003
at the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art
Opening Reception Sunday, June 30, 2 - 5 pm

The Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art at Snug Harbor Cultural Center presents ARTFRONT/WATERFRONT: Artists Explore the Staten Island North Shore, an exhibition of over thirty newly commissioned visual and performance projects by regional and internationally recognized artists for the Newhouse galleries, other cultural institutions and public locations along the North Shore of Staten Island. A necklace of parks, museums, and historical sites enlivens the North Shore of Staten Island from the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge to the Bayonne Bridge. This wealth of attractions looks out on one of the most commanding vistas in New York City. Exploring the distinctive identity, character, stories and symbolism of the Staten Island shoreline, these artworks inspire discovery and reflection on the harbor in our midst – a dynamic, changing waterfront of mournful decay and inherent beauty.
