“Design Newark”
Newark, NJ is connected to a rich background of design, architecture, and craft that continues today in various forms.

Today, the city is filled with numerous designers of all trades working to show the City of Newark in a positive light or to better the area. The exhibition, Design Newark will display 100 designs created for Newark by Newark-based designers. The exhibition will capture every facet of design including graphic, industrial, product, architecture, fashion, digital and more.

The breadth of Newark’s design has been fostered by its unique status as an international city, housing among other groups, the largest Brazilian and Portuguese populations in the world outside of those countries. As such, we are opening the exhibition to international designs born in these countries that gives Newark it’s cultural texture.
