Bringing people together has always been my strong suit, so why not bring my artistic and creative souls together? I was wanting to do an event to finish the year off since I have been a little quiet lately giving myself time to live a little. So, I stopped by my comrade, Cheese’s spot Redemption Art & Music to “shoot the sh!t” as some say. He suggested doing the second edition of All City 1.0 which happened a couple years ago with Dj Bizznice. Since everyone is already in my circle why not continue the legacy, right? Makes sense. So we put it all in motion, collecting amazing talent from New Jersey’s best. The goal was 12 artists but I ended up with 52 pieces of work.
The scene was set at Blow-Out Beauty Lounge who has an amazing space and also filled with very talented hairstylist. Juan Vasquez helped me with the task of hanging every piece of work, Dj Bizznice was our Dj for the night and the sweets were provided by SugarSupplyJC with her custom pastries. While pouring some mango mimosas and adding the final touches Ms. ChicPea and mini ChicPea came in for a sneak peak before the night started. After a little dance with mini Chicpea we were ready to open the doors.
Jayne West covered the event for ChicPeaJC with an interview from myself and a couple artists as well. With over 100 people coming by the energy was great! I am glad I chose to collab with Society Needs Culture, Redemption Art & Music, Blow-Out Beauty Lounge because it just made sense. It’s amazing to be surrounded by people who believe in you. I am proud of the artwork presented and look forward to curating another…. Please check out the article!
All City 2.0 was a success!!! Thank you to all the artists that entrusted me with their work including the Legendary Ernie Paniccioli!
