The pandemic has pushed people to think outside of the box and come up with new and exciting ways to interact with each other. Luckily, Gardenship, an NJ-artist run coworking/networking space-based in Kearny Point has done just that. It has created a new way for people to come together and immersive themselves in new, local art safely by hosting the region’s first drive-in art and film exhibition series, beginning this Saturday, September 16th, at 7:00PM {and it’s free to the public, too!}. This weekend’s event will take place at the Gardenship at Kearny Point parking lot located at 205 Campus Drive, Kearny — here are the details.
