Montclair, NJ – Come see “Jerry in Bloom,” a show of eight new additional sculptures to the Hillside Sculpture Park, created by the late Jerry Gant, a Black American artist whose work is associated with abstract expressionism, Neo Dada, and street art practices. Gant is best known for his depictions of urban Black expression in the forms of fashion, poetry, street art, painting, sculpture and performance.
Linda Street, a longtime colleague of Gant’s and manager of his estate, will be on hand to answer questions about his work. The opening reception, catered by Montclair’s Events by Joni, will take place Friday, May 19th from 6 – 8 pm at 8 Hillside Avenue, (intersection of Orange Rd. and Church Street) in Montclair.
