ARTS Initiated in 2013 and funded by a Clean Communities Grant, the Jersey City Mural Arts Program is a Mayor’s Office Initiative that links established and emerging local, national and international mural artists with property owners city-wide as part of an innovative beautification program that reduces graffiti, engages local residents and is transforming Jersey City into an outdoor art gallery. Cinelease Studios Caven Point commissioned a local artist in New Jersey to create a massive mural paying homage to the robust history of film and entertaiment in the state where filmmaking began. The mural is painted on the outside of Stage 1 and can be seen from the street (pictured below).
