Inaugural Project: Treat Pl. and Beaver St. Initiative
Request for Proposals | Deadline: Sept. 3, 2019
The Treat Pl. and Beaver St. Initiative will bring to life over twenty facades and surfaces in Newark’s Downtown District in the late Fall of 2019. The project was conceived by a public-private partnership between local property owners RBH Group and Paramount Assets, along with the City via the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation (NCEDC), the Newark Downtown District (NDD) and Newark Arts. This is the first phase of an ongoing collaborative effort called Four Corners Public Arts, which will advocate for impact-driven, public art initiatives in and surrounding Broad St. and Market St. in Newark, New Jersey.
The partnership evolved out of a common interest to renew blighted areas through the arts, with the goal of cultivating creative communal space for everyone. The initiative will also help mitigate the growing pains associated with development in progress, or construction zones. This alliance feels strongly that, in a time where Newark is changing, part of their work must include creating opportunities to strengthen the local creative community.
