The “Artnership” - A Fresh Take on Art in Public Spaces
Bell Works' Metroburb, May 15—July 31, 2019, Holmdel, New Jersey
April XX, 2019 Bell Works and Howard Schoor Art, LLC, today announced their collaboration—the “Artnership,” a fresh take on art in public spaces, is coming to Bell Works’ Holmdel, New Jersey, Metroburb May 15 th to July 31 st . Whereas traditional art in public spaces often amounts to little more than art or sculpture affixed to a building or displayed in a common area, the Artnership places art and the artist in the building’s interior space and its atmospheric culture. The experience of art in public spaces is elevated.
Part-time Asbury Park, New Jersey, resident, Howard Schoor is an award-winning abstract artist, quickly gaining acclaim for his distinct, colorful Trianglist artworks he describes as “happy art.” Schoor said, “The Metroburb is the perfect location for our first Artnership. The energy within the space is incredible. I’m as excited to tap into this dynamic culture as I am to share my paintings and art with the building’s tenants and visitors.” A hybrid artist in residence, Howard Schoor Art will have dedicated space within the Metroburb for a pop-up gallery. Howard Schoor will be on site creating art and engaging with his temporary neighbors on a daily basis.
Bell Works is the reimagining of the historic former Bell Labs building in Holmdel, once the largest vacant commercial building in the country at two million square feet. The vision of Somerset Development President Ralph Zucker, the term Metroburb was coined to describe a self-contained metropolis in a livable and accessible suburban location.
