Indie Street Film Festival, Kitch Organic and Two River Theater are proud to announce that they will partner for Red Bank’s second community mural project, which will take place the weekend of July 7 through July 9th.
After a successful installation in 2016, Indie Street’s Artistic Director, Jay Webb, and world renowned street artist, MDot, will team up again to bring public art and an unforgettable community experience to Red Bank. This year’s mural, to be painted by local youth and community volunteers on the wall of Kitch Organic, will be a celebratory launch for two inspirational and creative events to be hosted in Red Bank this summer: The Indie Street Film Festival happening July 26th through July 30th at multiple Red Bank venues, and the Crossing Borders (Cruzando Fronteras) Festival of new Latino plays happening August 2nd through August 6th at Two River Theater. Both events, along with the interactive mural project, hope to inspire diverse communities, which help make the arts in Red Bank so captivating, to come together.
More than 20 local youth will take part in painting the mural, representing Two River Theater’s Education Programs, Project Write Now, Red Bank Regional High School, Horizons at Rumson Country Day School, JBJ Soul Kitchen and more!
This year’s Red Bank Community Mural project is sponsored by Red Bank RiverCenter. Say Executive Director James Scavone, “This community mural project is a perfect example of what the arts in Red Bank are all about – inspiring the community to unite around the arts. The Indie Street Film Festival and Two River Theater’s Crossing Borders Festival are both events that reach into the community to engage them in the arts. RiverCenter is thrilled to partner with them to help present this mural to the community of Red Bank.”
