The fourth ARTeriors pop-up exhibit will take place 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays through Dec. 23.
ARTeriors is a temporary “collaboration of artists turning an unused space into a lively and eclectic experience for residents and visitors of Atlantic City,” says Joyce Hagen, executive director of the Atlantic City Arts Foundation and an artist herself in ARTeriors. “The ACAF ARTeriors program temporarily takes over properties in Atlantic City that are ‘in transition’ — condemned, for sale, for rent, vacant — and gives them a renewed life for a short period of time. Properties selected for an ARTeriors event undergo a quick transformation by local artists, and then are opened to the neighborhood and the general public to enjoy.”
The unused space for ARTeriors: Tanger Outlets The Walk is the former Wet Seal store, located between Aeropostale and American Eagle, at 111 N. Michigan Ave in A.C. The free exhibit opens with an open-to-the-public VIP reception for $25 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 8, with light refreshments by The Iron Room, Tun Tavern, Ruth’s Chris and Little Water Distillery. Tickets for the reception can be purchased at EventBrite.com.
Artists creating a variety of two- and three-dimensional installations for this ARTeriors are Ed Alvarez, Nastassia Davis, Christian Mauriello and Jorge Azcona, Marjorie Preston, Karl Rosenberg, Marcus Hughes, Rob Rossiello, Chung-Fan Chang and Hagen.
For more information, go to AtlanticCityArtsFoundation.org. Complimentary valet or self parking is available for the VIP reception on Friday. Valet will be in front of Old Navy; free self-parking can be found at Applebee’s.
