Mission Statement

City Without Walls (cWOW) is an urban gallery of emerging art that advances the careers of artists while building the audience for contemporary art.

City Without Walls is New Jersey's oldest not-for-profit alternative art space, in continuous operation in the City of Newark since 1975. Its two-fold mission offers career development opportunities to new and emerging artists, while providing the public a chance to understand and enjoy challenging contemporary art. We operate a professional fine art gallery that showcases the work of over 100 emerging artists per year in 10 to 14 on-site, off-site, online and traveling exhibitions.

cWOW offers programs and services designed to address artist and community needs that are not served by other sources. Our ArtReach education program pairs promising high school art students with working-artist mentors, and offers other students valuable experience through gallery internships. Newark New Media is our artist residency and apprenticeship program at the cutting edge of art and technology. cWOW arranges large-scale art commissions for public and private spaces, and advocates for artist rights and artist-friendly public policy. We also provide information about artist opportunities and technical assistance.

Description

City Without Walls (cWOW) is an urban gallery of emerging art that advances the careers of artists while building the audience for contemporary art. Our exhibition and education programs use art and technology to help build communities, careers, and contemporary culture. cWOW is New Jersey’s oldest non-profit contemporary art gallery, based in Newark since 1975, and a multi-year winner of the New Jersey State Council on the Art’s "Citation of Excellence." The New York Times calls cWOW "one of the most socially engaged and dynamic art spaces in the state."

City Murals, one of the education programs at City Without Walls, is a community enrichment and youth training program that integrates public art and workforce development through a collaboration between City Without Walls (cWOW), the City of Newark and other partners. City Murals is a public art program that shows how urban youth can be made ready for the world of work in a creative economy while also beautifying Newark and fostering neighborhood pride. The program is allied with the City’s THIS IS NEWARK! gateway design project, which marks points of arrival to Newark with public art.
