Art All Day and Trenton Ciclovia
September 18 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Art All Day and Trenton Ciclovia are back again on Saturday, September 18, with a whole new safe, in-person “Open Studios, Open Streets” event in Trenton
Warren Street downtown, St. Joe’s Avenue in East Trenton, the Roebling Wire Works building, and Artworks’ main galleries will be bursting with art and activities as a combined Art All Day/Ciclovia returns on Saturday, September 18 from 12 noon to 6 p.m. Mindful of the continuing threat of COVID-19, organizers are again planning an event where safety is a priority, featuring outdoors activities and multiple safety protocols for indoor sites.
Highlights include the Freedom Skate park and Trenton Circus Squad at the Roebling Wire Works, live mural painting outdoors and artist open studios and two special exhibits inside at Artworks, plus an activated open Warren Street downtown in partnership with the Trenton Downtown Association, and another open street on St. Joe’s Avenue at Breunig Avenue Park in partnership with the East Trenton Collaborative. Children’s activities, local food attractions, multiple walking and bike tours are planned – with the two open streets accessible via the Circuit Trails. The fondly remembered Art All Day trolleys are set to return this year too, with tours of multiple sites participating in the event.
“We are hoping, like last year, that after continuing uncertainty and anxiety in the face of coronavirus, Art All Day/Ciclovia will be a breath of fresh air for Trenton, a chance to get outside, reconnect and rejoice at all we have here,” said Artworks Executive Director Lauren Otis.
“Activating streets for people is what Ciclovia is all about, particularly in these isolating times,” said Sonia Szczesna, Director of Active Transportation, Tri-State Transportation Campaign. “We can’t wait to bring people out into the streets of Trenton together for another year in partnership with Art All Day,” she said.
Visitors can park at Artworks or the Lafayette Yard Parking Garage, pick up a map/program and explore for themselves or take a guided tour. A mobile site map and information on the event, schedules, participants and sites, will be available at artworkstrenton.org/artallday and on the Art All Day/Ciclovia Facebook event page.
