Live at the Ferry Slip Original Music Series
Perth Amboy Artworks Live at the Ferry Slip Music Series is going into its fifth season. We transform the Historic Perth Amboy Ferry Slip into a live music venue directly on the water with beautiful views of Raritan Bay. The 2020 season has been canceled due to the pandemic. Next year in 2021 we will celebrate our 5 year anniversary of the popular live music series featuring exciting local & regional bands and singer/ songwriters.
Perth Amboy Artworks sponsors murals to add vibrancy to Perth Amboy. In August 2016, Perth Amboy Artworks sponsored a 650 ft. mural created by a local Perth Amboy artist to cover a blank wall and complete the beautification of the public walkway that had deteriorated due to Superstorm Sandy.
Catch Basin Murals
We are also working on a Catch Basin Murals Project with the City of Perth Amboy and the Perth Amboy Arts Council, where local artists paint murals on the catch basins to raise awareness about keeping them clean to protect the environment, and to stop litter and debris from entering our stormwater infrastructure and waterways.
Paint and Sip Perth Amboy Artworks hosts Paint and Sip Events. On April 6, 2017 we hosted a relaxing evening painting nautical sunsets in a downtown venue at 289 High St with live music and delicious food.
Pop-Up Cinema Perth Amboy Artworks hosts Pop-Up Cinema, screening award winning films at venues around the city and also hosts directors and actors in conversation about the films. In October 2016, we hosted the award winning indie thriller FACES. Director, crew and cast members were on hand to talk about the film.
Mentoring Artists, musicians, writers, photographers, filmmakers! We go to Career Day events. This is a photo from Career Day at Wilentz School in Perth Amboy, artist Jonathan Horowitz talking to kids about what careers involve art! Good times!
