For 18 years, the 65+ artists at historic Manufacturers Village in East Orange have welcomed the public into their creative studios each fall. For the first time the doors will be open to all this spring to explore the work and spaces of professional painters, sculptors, woodworkers, quilters, designers, printmakers, photographers, multi-media artists and more.

Spring Open House weekend is a free event designed to fuse art, architecture, community and inspiration. It will be a chance to meet the artists, view their work and purchase original pieces. It also hopes to inspire visitors to start a new artistic pursuit, meet other people in the local community and to give lovers of history and architecture, the rare opportunity to explore these well-preserved historic buildings with a self-guided tour.

Visitors will also be able to view the East Orange Community Black Lives Matter Mural, one of the state’s largest murals. Painted in the spring of 2021, this 9,000 square foot mural was created by sixteen artists from the greater East Orange Community.

Takes about 30 mins from NY Penn Station to Watsessing Station via NJTransit and then a 3 min Uber or an easy 12 min walk.

Or Path train to Harrison and a 15 min Uber ride.
