Arts and Culture
More than a Sunday segment of the New York Times, Arts and Culture are two words that strike fear and loathing into the hearts of the young and texting (that is, besides “You’re grounded”…actually three words, but who’s counting? ) For those whose appreciation of art, theatre and music is already finely tuned, this section will grant you access to the best New Jersey has to offer. For those who are new to the broad spectrum of the arts, these pages will open a world of possibilities. There is music, film, theatre, comedy, and always, art.
The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work. Emile Zola
Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others. Jonathan Swift
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. Scott Adams
Art is making something out of nothing and selling it. Frank Zappa
Believe it or not, I can actually draw. Michelangelo
If there is truly anyone out there that thinks New Jersey Arts and Culture is limited to, “Oh yeah, what exit?”, we have to talk. New Jersey is an oasis to eNJoy great works of art, music and theatre as well as the birthplace and breeding ground for some of the world’s most renowned artists. The” Rock Star” persona that we now see in Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen was set in motion long ago by another New Jersey singer, a lad by the name of Frank Sinatra. This densely populated piece of land gave birth to the imaginations of writers such as Toni Morrison, Judy Blume, Alan Ginsberg, Phillip Roth and America’s first novelist James Fenimore Cooper. Where would Hollywood be without New Jersey’s contribution to film and television? Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson, Alan Alda, Tom Cruise, Danny DeVito and James Gandolfini all called New Jersey home. Oh yeah, and Kevin Smith. A world without “Clerks” is no world at all. If you are an aficionado of fine arts, you can eNJoy the many art galleries and museums located a short drive from home.
