Move over Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday! Introducing Artists Sunday – November 29, 2020. Artists Sunday is the nationwide movement dedicated to supporting artists and recognizing the impact they have in enriching our lives, communities, and the economy and, this year, HomeFront is joining the effort.
Artists Sunday is celebrated between Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. The day is dedicated to encouraging consumers to shop with artists and give something special, unique, and hand-crafted this holiday season.
Between November 14 and December 12, ArtJam for the Holidays will showcase the art of more than 50 professional artists and undiscovered artists who have experienced homelessness. In addition to an online gallery (www.artjamnj.org), the art can be safely viewed and purchased by appointment in HomeFront’s new Blue Garage Gallery at the Family Campus in Ewing, NJ.
