Princeton, NJ: ArtJam- The area’s premiere Art Event celebrates its 10th year in support of Homefront! Kicking off on Friday March 29 through April 16, ArtJam features the diverse works of more than 125 artists. Proceeds will help support Homefront’s artists and ArtSpace programs.
The ArtJam opening reception will be held on Friday, March 29 and it is open to the public from 5 to 9 p.m. at 19 Hulfish Street, Palmer Square in Princeton.
Turning a vacant storefront into a colorful art-filled pop-up gallery each spring, HomeFront’s ArtJam invites art lovers to experience a double win – buying artworks they love AND supporting a good cause.
ArtJam happens in Princeton once a year. This year the work of more than 125 professional international, national and local artists with undiscovered artists who have experienced homelessness will be featured. Accomplished artists including Judith Brodsky, Bill Jersey and Kenneth Lewis will have their work available for purchase.
Spanning 19 days, ArtJam will present more than art for sale, with live music performances, private parties, and artist demos as well.
Gallery hours are Monday through Wednesday, 12 noon to 6 p.m.; Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. The gallery is open from Friday, March 29 to Monday, April 16.

Since its founding 27 years ago, HomeFront (www.homefrontnj.org) has worked to end family homelessness in Central New Jersey by breaking the cycle of poverty through the provision of shelter, skills for a self-sustaining life and hope. HomeFront has developed a sophisticated network of supportive housing and social services for very low-income households who are either homeless or at high risk of becoming so.
HomeFront has also transformed buildings – taking a decommissioned Navy training station, managing a $6 million makeover to become a Family Campus and creating an inviting haven for homeless families yearning for stability and success.
