Day-Long, Free Art and Music Event for Community Members and Artists
TRENTON, N.J., July 28, 2014 – For the ninth year in a row, recycling company TerraCycle is hosting the Jersey Fresh Jam, an event that gives graffiti artists from the tri-state area a place to showcase their work. During the August 9 event, there will be performances from local MCs and musicians, food trucks and vendors, and artists painting the exterior walls of TerraCycle’s Trenton headquarters. Jersey Fresh Jam is free and open to the public.
The Trenton-based graffiti collective Vicious Styles Crew that coordinates Jersey Fresh Jam is also hosting a pre-party show called Cantankerous, sponsored by Momentum Art Tech, August 8 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the TerraCycle office.
Since 2005, when Jersey Fresh Jam started, TerraCycle has opened its doors to local artists and the community. Jersey Fresh Jam has grown from a small, low-key celebration into not only New Jersey’s premier Hip Hop festival, but one of the most respected celebrations of Hip Hop culture on the East Coast.
Event Details: August 8 – Pre-event art show, Cantankerous, 6-10 p.m., August 9 – Jersey Fresh Jam, noon-6 p.m. Both events are at the TerraCycle office, 121 New York Avenue, Trenton, N.J. 08638. For information about either event, visit http://jerseyfreshjam.com.
