Artwork's 11th Annual Art All Night Returns to Trenton June 17 - 18

Princeton Online Announcement

 

TRENTON, N.J.—May 16, 2017—Coming off of its highly successful ten year anniversary in 2016, Artworks Trenton is back with their 11th annual Art All Night – Trenton arts festival, a 24-hour extravaganza that celebrates community, creativity, and inspiration for the city of Trenton. Kicking off at 3 p.m. on June 17, 2017 and running through 3 p.m. on June 18, 2017, Art All Night – Trenton will once again take over the Historic Roebling Wire Works building in Trenton, packing the facility and surrounding area with thousands of pieces of art, live music, an array of food trucks and vendors, and more.

 

Returning sponsors for 2017 include our main sponsor, Bank of America. “Bank of America is so excited to once again be the presenting sponsor of Art All Night,” says Bob Doherty, New Jersey state president, Bank of America. “Not only is this a fun filled event but it is also a great way to showcase and promote art, music and food in our local community.” Reid Sound has also returned as sponsor for our main music stage and our Indoor Stage; Russo Music is also set to return as sponsor for our Food Court Stage. The festival is also supported by Mercer County, who has always given Artworks their backing for this 24-hour festival.

 

The main attraction every Art All Night – Trenton is the art gallery, which encompases most of the Roebling Wire Works building. With approximately 1,500 pieces of art on display in 2016, Art All Night – Trenton organizers plan for at least 1,600-1,700 pieces to be on display this year, with art coming in from the tri-state area and beyond. Adding onto the gallery will be an array of live art creation, including a live glassblowing display on Saturday,, live bike welding, live graffiti painting from a collection of local artists, as well as muralists creating their own pieces during the event.

 

The 2017 edition of Art All Night – Trenton will also see a revamped live music selection. There will be over 60 live acts on display throughout the 24-hour festival gracing one of the three stages at the festival. Festival organizers promise that everything from jazz to rock will be heard throughout the event, with an emphasis of diversifying the style of music that will be played on each stage from act to act.

 

There have also been changes made to how Sundays at Art All Night – Trenton are structured. The “master class” portion of Art All Night – Trenton has been a success over previous years, but in 2017, organizers have turned it into an interactive art circuit, with all of the “courses” taking place on Sunday as more of a walking tour featuring local artists, education on the history of the building and the city of Trenton, and community projects. It’s sure to reshape how people view a Sunday afternoon at Art All Night – Trenton.

 

Added onto all of this is the return of the very successful Silent Disco, the sixth annual International Film Festival, which will be showcasing short films from dozens of countries (as well as debuting its first Filmmaker Challenge), and our famed World Food Court, which will feature everything from falafel and pizza to crepes and Trenton’s own 1911 Smokehouse BBQ, making the 11th edition of Art All Night – Trenton a true destination event.

 

Art All Night – Trenton takes place at 675 South Clinton Avenue in Trenton, N.J. on Saturday, June 17, 2017 through Sunday, June 18, 2017. It is organized by Artworks Trenton, which is Trenton’s downtown visual arts center which promotes artistic diversity by fostering creativity, learning, and appreciation of the arts.
