Arts, culture, ideas & expression of a few wild art monkeys living in an arts loft in Jersey City.

Back when JC had galleries and event spaces-

-RockSoup had their first big show.
At the first official meeting for the RockSoup Studios concept, we called all the community leaders and arts managers together offered to orchestrate the first of a series of events & exhibitions built on the backs of our talent and our network. As Artists of many mediums, we ARE the talent that producers hire to build their concepts.RockSoup asked "what do you as artists want to build, what vision do you want to see come to fruition"? Whatever it is we can do it, as long as we do it together.

Of those invited to our first meeting, some got on board for our first big show at Mana Fine Arts, an enormous exhibition space that is no longer with us. MFA's exhibition space was Spearheaded by Ev Stone whom gave us our first crack at a show there. New Beginnings/Ancient Wisdom- fused art/music and video and treated the exhibition space as not just a space to hang art, but also as an environment to celebrate within. 660 Grand is the product of this same philosophy.

Take a look at the youtube clip to see a portion of what went down that night...bc the pic that accompanies this blog post isnt from MFA, its from our show at CANCO Lofts a few years back. I don't think they are around anymore either.
