I'm currently working on a proposal to be put before Trenton City Council whose aim if successful will result in a new Art Gallery in Trenton.
There is an empty school that has been sitting empty for two years on College St. in downtown Trenton. That school would make an impressive art gallery.
More impressively with the right content, it could draw tourist traffic and tourist money into Trenton. It has parking and is capable of accepting tour busses.
Properly advertised this gallery could be an important revenue source that would benefit the entire community.
For an art community to thrive in Trenton, there needs to be a place to showcase our work. Art communities drive culture and the activities inevitably excite curiosity and things to be curious about draw people inquisitive minds.
Trenton needs this idea to get real.
