The Future

Art House is moving into the new state-of-the-art facility at 184 Morgan Street by the end of 2021/early 2022 and will house a staff and resources that will help Art Fair 14C on the administrative side in a larger capacity.

For art lovers, the merger means Art House will broaden its services and continue its commitment to the Jersey City arts community and the visual arts by expanding 14C’s core programs and building on Art House’s existing visual arts programs.

“We’ve long been fans of Art House Productions and its commitment to artistic excellence and community engagement,” says Art Fair 14C founder Robinson Holloway via the press release. “A merger can be a business tool for growth, and it’s one that not many nonprofits use. Art Fair 14C and Art House Productions have complementary missions that serve both artists and audiences, and I think that in combination we can become Jersey City’s strongest and most dynamic arts organization.”

The merged company will operate as Art House Productions, Inc, but Art Fair 14C will retain its name and identity as visual arts programming within Art House Productions.
