The Four Corners Historic District sits at the intersection of Broad and Market streets in Newark, New Jersey. As the first settlement in the city, Four Corners quickly cemented itself as Newark’s business hub. But not all areas surrounding Four Corners are as inviting as that thriving intersection. The Four Corners Art Project was born of a desire to revitalize the blighted, less trafficked corridors, in the hope of creating equitable opportunities and programs for artists and the surrounding communities. Rebecca Jampol and fayemi shakur will discuss the cross sector collaborative process that led to the 4 Corners Art Project, the community’s involvement in the project.
